The latest innovation to combat the menacing levels of air pollution in the Chinese capital, Beijing, is a smog-sucking bicycle, designed to inhale polluted air, clean it and pump out fresh air as you pedal along.

Dutch artists Daan Roosegaarde, the brain behind the idea, says the idea syncs with growing interest in bike sharing programs in China, offering a creative approach to tackle pollution, writes Inhabitat.

Roosegaarde, who earned wide recognition and appreciation for his concept of smog free tower back in 2014, says the same technology can power the smog free bicycle, combating both traffic congestion and pollution problem, notes Design Boom.
