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. In 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.
