But, you don’t have to fly all the way to London to catch a glimpse of the festivities. The event will be streamed live on YouTube.

Yes, in case you were wondering, the British royal family has an official YouTube account. You can watch the live stream of the royal wedding there on May 19, 11:00 BST.

These new Ikea curtains fight indoor pollution by filtering air

Talk about being functional!

Ikea has just announced groundbreaking technology that will not only add to your home decorating or homemaking ventures, as the brand has been apt to do; it will also help keep your living space cleaner by purifying indoor air.

This is Ikea’s Gunrid curtain and it works just like a plant: It breaks down harmful pollutants when it gets in contact with light. The fabric itself has undergone “mineral-based surface treatment” which enables it to destroy common indoor air pollutants like formaldehyde and odor. And since the tech is in the fabric, future products aren’t, in theory, limited to just curtains.

Unknown to most, indoor air pollution is a big deal with some living spaces found to have conditions five times worse than other parts of the world and a higher death toll than outdoor pollution. Mauricio Affonso, Product Developer at Ikea Range & Supply says, “We are creating an affordable and space-saving air purifying solution that also makes the home more beautiful.”

Ikea hopes to put these Gunrid curtains on shelves by 2020.
