Thinking about various airmasks & air quality sensors this week for my assignment for Intro to Wearables. I’ve been thinking about air quality masks more in depth since the wildfires on the west coast this past year. Thinking of a device that lets you know when to wear an airmask. Example: air quality sensor + neopixels that change color depending on the air quality, letting you know if the air condition would require a mask.

Hoping to start with this EPA Build Your Own Particle sensor guide for 5-12th grade students that uses the Grove Dust Sensor as a first hardware exploration:

  • “Not a laser design and so doesn’t count individual particals but is instead a cloud sensing arrangement with which one integrates low outputs caused by particles or groups of particles passing through an infrared beam for a period of usually 30 seconds. Good down to one micron which gets it into dust and pollen territory.”
