My first thought was South Park monowheel and other posters provided it. Damn this thing is so ridiculous.

After additional research, this has become less useful if it can't be powered while plugged in to a battery bank. The operational period with the purifier is pretty poor; worse than other non-medical grade portable air-purifying respirators. Even the LG Puricare 2 mask at least manages 5+ hours at full power while having a microphone + speaker for clearer voice through the mask (Razer's questionable equivalent manages 4 at full power, but doesn't have voice amplification/passthrough).

I have to wonder how overly complex is the filtration unit that the battery life is pretty atrocious.

From Gizmodo:
The Dyson Zone’s 40-millimeter neodymium drivers are promised to reproduce frequencies from 6Hz to 21kHz, while a 2,600 mAh battery that can be fully recharged in about three hours offers up to 50 hours of audio enjoyment, even with ANC turned on. However, the Dyson Zone’s battery life takes quite a hit with the air filtration system activated. With the purifier on its lowest setting, the Dyson Zone’s battery life reaches just four hours, but drops to 2.5 hours on the medium setting, and a mere 1.5 hours with the air filtration system working as hard as it can. That’s more than enough for the average daily commute, but not really long enough to provide fresh air on most domestic or international flights, at least without an external power source.

It is indeed real, but I doubt they'll get many customers for it.

Leave people breathless, then offer to sell them a breathing aid. The guys and gals in Dyson's marketing department should get their salaries doubled if they haven't already.
