http://www.studioroosegaarde.net - Dutch designer Daan Roosegaarde and his team of experts has developed an "electronic vacuum cleaner" that can remove smog from urban skies and is working with the mayor of Beijing to use the technology in a new park in the city.

The design uses buried coils of copper to create an ion electrostatic field that attracts smog particles, creating a void of clean air above it. "You can purify the air so you can breathe again" according to Roosegaarde. "It creates these holes of 50-60 metres of clean air so you can see the sun again."

The pilot is scheduled in 2014 in a downtown Beijing park.
