The Huma-i is a Portable Air Quality Meter that Can Measure Pollution Wherever You Go

On this same website, a significant amount of content has been produced regarding the potentially hazardous effects that air pollution can have on one’s health. This is a significant cause for concern for the public’s health in places that are in close proximity to roadways. It’s been claimed that roads are the smokestacks of the 21st century, but that’s not quite accurate. If you believe that remaining indoors is the answer, you should reconsider that position. It’s not uncommon for the air inside a home to be significantly more polluted than the air outdoors.

Huma-i aspires to serve as your very own personal air quality watchdog. The device, which is small enough to fit in your pocket, analyzes the levels of fine and ultrafine particulate matter in the air (PM10 and PM2.5), as well as CO2 and a variety of other gases and volatile organic compounds. In order to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of your environment, it will also give you readings on the temperature and humidity.

The best part is that all of this content can be viewed on the gadget itself, which means there is no need to fiddle about with your smartphone. Pressing the capacitive buttons will enable the display mode, which will spew out specific readings as well as an air quality graph. This mode is in addition to the status LED, which shows you right away how dirty the air is around you.

For the past month to six months, Huma-i has been made available in its native market of South Korea, where it has traditionally been sold. It seems like it has been selling like hotcakes recently.

Additional sensor readings are included in this version that is being offered on Indiegogo, which marks the start of the company’s international model. And it’s doing quite well for itself. With 26 days left, the campaign has already significantly surpassed its modest $5,000 objective. It is anticipated that backers will receive their rewards in February of 2019.
