Today in China, billionaire Chen Guangbiao launched his line of canned air. Each can of "Good Person Chen Guangbiao" (that's the trademark!) canned air is priced at the equivalent of US$.80 and contains fresh air from Wuhe county in Anhui province and Taiwan.

Apparently, the billionaire has produced 100,000 cans and hopes to raise awareness about the importance of clean air—a good thing as many cities suffer from pollution.
