If you are interested in measuring the quality around you as you go about your daily life a new wearable device called the TZOA might be the perfect addition to your ensemble.
TZOAAs a small wearable device that connects to your smart phone using a companion application and keeps you informed of the air quality around you in real time. To learn more about this innovative wearable device watch the video below which has been created by its developers.
The TZOA project is currently over on the Kickstarter crowd funding website looking to raise $110,000 in pledges to make the jump from concept to production. Its creators explain a little more :
“How is it possible that we have become so disconnected from the air we breathe? Clean air is even more essential to us than food or water, but we do far less to appreciate it, and don’t track how it affects our health. Our cities and homes are a patchwork of clean and dirty air that we can’t see and haven’t had the ability to discover. With something as vital as air, we shouldn’t be in the dark any longer.
Right now, most cities are lucky to have a handful of expensive roof-top environmental monitors, recording data infrequently. The amount of information we are gathering is extremely limited; there needs to be hundreds of street-level monitors regularly monitoring to really know what is going on, so that we can identify how to improve and make a difference.”
So if you think TZOA is something you could benefit from, visit the Kickstarter website via the link below to make a pledge and help TZOA become a reality and help measure the air quality around you.
