Cone of Freshness

Activated charcoal cubicle walls
  [vote for,

The office has to be built from the ground up with the HVAC cold air return system under the floor. Every few feet are some ports where you can snap in an activated charcoal cubicle wall. These hold the walls in place, and are also the connection for the filters built into the cubicle walls.

Whenever the HVAC system turns on, stinky co-worker smells are drawn into their cone of freshness instead of around the office. Filters can be replaced as necessary.

       Please make sure to include in the orientation that this is no substitute for bathing.

       As lbaf notes, activated charcoal is no magic cure-all.

       Neither is bathing in cologne instead of water.

       Could also help to get rid of obnoxious lunch smells from the microwave in the kitchen corner.

       That's an interesting thought. Does anyone make a smell filtering microwave oven? There are non-ducted type range hoods with charcoal filters.
