  • Publication number: 20240108920
    Abstract: A wearable air purification system including a wearable support configured to be supported on a head of a user; and an air delivery mask which is shaped to at least partially bound an air delivery region and to deliver a flow of air to the air delivery region. The wearable support includes a left side support and a right side support which support, at a front side of the system, the air delivery mask therebetween. The system further includes a motor housing for a motor which is configured to drive the air flow to or from the air delivery region, in use, wherein the motor mounting locates at a rear side of the user's head when the system is supported on the user's head in use.

  • Publication number: 20240108115
    Abstract: A haircare appliance having an air inlet, an air outlet, and an airflow generator for generating an airflow from the air inlet to the air outlet and an attachment for a haircare appliance, the attachment including an air inlet, an air outlet. A curved surface adjacent to and downstream of the air outlet. The haircare appliance or the attachment has a curved surface adjacent to and downstream of the air outlet. The haircare appliance or the attachment is configured such that airflow exiting the air outlet generates a first force to attract hair toward the curved surface, and a second force to push hair away from the curved surface.

  • Publication number: 20240065407
    Abstract: A haircare appliance has an air inlet, an air outlet, and an airflow generator for generating an airflow from the air inlet to the air outlet. The haircare appliance has a fixed body defining the air outlet, and a rotatable member rotatable relative to the fixed body. The air outlet has a first aperture located on a first side of the fixed body, and a second aperture located on a second side of the fixed body opposite to the first side of the fixed body. The rotatable member is rotatable from a first configuration in which the rotatable member permits airflow through the first aperture and blocks airflow through the second aperture, to a second configuration in which the rotatable member permits airflow through the second aperture and blocks airflow through the first aperture. The rotatable member is located internally of the fixed member.

  • Publication number: 20240065411
    Abstract: A hair styling appliance is described that includes an airflow unit for generating an airflow, a heating unit for heating the airflow, and a control unit for controlling the airflow unit and the heating unit. The control unit receives user data relating to at least one of a desired style, a hair type and a previous styling by the appliance. The control unit controls the airflow unit and the heating unit in a sequence of modes to style the hair of a user, the airflow unit having a different flow rate and/or the heating unit having a different heat setting in different modes. The control unit uses the user data to define the sequence of modes.

  • Publication number: 20240057738
    Abstract: A hair styling appliance is described that includes an airflow unit for generating an airflow, a heating unit for heating the airflow, and a control unit for controlling the airflow unit and the heating unit. The control unit controls the airflow unit and the heating unit in a predefined sequence of modes that includes a first mode, a second mode and a third mode. The airflow unit has a different flow rate and/or the heating unit has a different heat setting in each of the modes, and the control unit determines when to transition between modes of the predefined sequence.
