Dorm life can suck! Especially if your roommates smoke and you don’t. One college student in Nanning City, China constructed a breathing contraption to combat secondhand smoke.

As pointed out on GameOver and Shanghai Daily, the student shares a dorm room with several smokers.

So, he bought a fan to blow in clean air from outside the room, funneling the air through plastic bags which is attached to his cardboard box “helmet.”

According to Shanghai Daily, the student said he couldn’t use the apparatus in cold weather, because he’d then have freezing air blowing on his face.

Surely, this is dangerous, no? And while I marvel at his ingenuity, I’m not sure how he sees outside the “helmet” so he can play games on his PC. That, and I don’t know why his roommates can’t just go outside for a smoke.
