Designaffairs Studio of Germany have designed a conceptual oxygen inhaler, O3, for a future scenario where there's not enough oxygen in the air for humans to survive.

o3 is a personal survival oxygen unit with a wicked message: the urgency and seriousness to rethink and react; o3 is the product you don´t want to need! If we´ll reach such a scenario, we designed o3 being a personal unit for your daily oxygen supply. The mouthpiece is easy to carry and individual. The oxygen is provided by compressed oxygen refill units which can be exchanged at your local oxygen supplier.

The design is simple and compact, and I like that is appears to be easy to use. The function of the product is interesting, as it isn't designed to be used now, but possibly in the future if it becomes necessary. Mainly it's the message that I find thought provoking, that if the human population as a whole continues to cause harm to the environment, then this product may become necessary. We are in control and all responsible for the future of our standard of living.
