With all of today’s air pollutants compromising our health , what’s one to do to avoid finding themselves in toxic peril? While you could go coal miner’s style carrying a canary around with you, we instead suggest throwing on a Detectair . Through an Arduino  microcontroller and sensor technologies, this cowl-neck vest is able to mimic the way you breathe based on your surrounding environment. If you happen to walk into an unhealthy airspace, the vest sniffs out the noxious culprits and sets off flashing LEDs and vibrating inserts teling you it’s time to go.
