Most air purifiers—even the fancy schmanzy NuCare OxyPure—are festooned with buttons and settings that give you control over air speed and running time. The new Mila purifier has virtually none of that, and it doesn’t just aim to take the burden of management off of the user, it does so in style.
While the OxyPure is a smart device in the sense that it can connect to your smart phone, the $349 Mila (also available at Amazon) is much more intelligent. On top of the stylish, 15-pound, 12 x 12 x 16-inch unit, you’ll find a single, round touchscreen with, essentially, two options: auto or manual. Mila’s goal is to get you to let it do the heavy lifting, and to do the bulk of your interactions with the device through a sophisticated mobile app on your phone.
