One out of three people in the United States are at-risk to experience effects of air pollution, according to the EPA. The AirVisual Node is a smart, portable air quality monitor that displays immediate pollution (PM) and carbon dioxide (CO2) readings, empowering users to protect themselves from invisible health threats.┬áIn addition PM and CO2, the AirVisual Node also displays outdoor air quality data, 3-day pollution forecasts, temperature, relative humidity, and local weather information on a 5″ LED screen and via smartphone, so users can thrive in polluted environments, wherever they go.

Supplemented by AirVisual’s global air pollution map, the device localizes a seemingly daunting challenge of air pollution down to the scale of a single room. The monitor blew past its Indiegogo goals on day 3, signaling the world may be ready to see what they are breathing to create healthier, more productive environments.
