Why we made it. Inspiration. Short description:

Most of us know the effects of bad air in meeting rooms and classrooms. You get tired and less alert. Bad air is directly connected to the level of CO2 in a room, due to insufficient ventilation. Just quickly opening a window will remedy the effects of bad air.

Not only do higher levels CO2 make you drowsier, but it also increases the risk of headaches, gives people with allergies a harder time and even decreases our capabilities for strategic and innovative thinking.

After reading this tutorial you will be able to build your own CO2 sensor unit and regulate the level of fresh air at your apartment, office, classroom or wherever.”
