It measures PM 2.5, Pollen, Ozone, CO2, Humidity, Temperature and other air pollutants from the governmental organizations to prepare the detailed air quality maps. Fredrik got inspiration for developing this device when he was on a run around the University of Southern California campus.
He felt the debilitating respiratory effects due to air pollution and decided to invent a device that keeps people away from the environmental pollution.
