How clean is the air you breathe?
hackAIR is an open technology platform that you can use to access, collect and improve air quality information in Europe. It was created by six European organisations as part of an EU-funded project on ‘Collective Awareness Platforms for Sustainability and Social Innovation’ (2016-2018).

I think this one of best projects I have ever seen. Especially the controller software is great and easy to install. Everything worked from the beginning. Wonderful!
Woot! Love it. I’m in an air quality challenged neighborhood and breaking out my soldering gun to build a sensor! Great project!
