Here’s an odd concept I didn’t see coming. It’s called the Oxyfit and it’s being billed as the “the world’s first compact personal oxygen supply.” In a nutshell, it’s a backpack designed to pump the O2 directly to you when you’re working out. In fact, the product page for the device says that it can be worn during nearly any activity, and that it is small, lightweight, and discreet. Furthermore, it claims that you’ll be able to “run farther, work longer, and even lose weight!”
The system weighs about 3.5 pounds and is powered by a lithium battery for 1.5 hours at a time. It promises to be able to “boosts available oxygen from 20% or lower up to 30%”. The miracle device doesn’t end there either, as it says that increased oxygen can boost brain power, increase your metabolism, and produce anti-aging effects too! All of this for the low, low price of just $2681.
Honestly, when I first saw this, I immediately thought of CamelBak, the company that makes those ubiquitous hydration packs that we all love so much. This product looks like it’s trying to be a CamelBak, but instead of serving up water while we’re on the go, it offers oxygen instead. I’ll bet even money that CamelBak will have a similar product at the Summer OR show that’ll do both. 😉
