A fan which can simulate natural wind.

This product was specifically designed for the astronauts at the ISS (International Space Station), who live in isolated and confined environments with no access to nature. As mission time increases, it becomes crucial to enable astronauts to “feel” nature again. The system consists of a fan+LED product (Micro-air) and a sensor. The fan is used to simulate natural wind, while the LED is utilized to simulate sunrise and sunset. Family members on Earth can plug the sensor into their phones and record videos during vacations. The sensor also captures wind speed and temperature. Once the data and videos are sent to the ISS, the Micro-air synchronizes with the videos. The combination of sound, video, and wind creates a cohesive and immersive experience, cultivating a sense of closeness for astronauts as they share similar sensory experiences with their families.
