This tiny device SPRIMO can detect the quality of the air you are breathing

by Samuel OnyikeOctober 3, 2017

Have you ever wanted to know what you are breathing ?. Knowing that you are taking in good air can afford you a quality peace of mind, but how can you tell the type of air you are breathing?

Discover SPRIMO, the tiny air-quality monitoring device that can tell how good or bad the air you are breathing it. Sprimo can tell the air around different substances such as Paint, Pollution, Chemicals, Cleaners, Dirty clothes, Smog. Second-hand smoke, Perfume, Glue, Pet waste, Garbage, And more
. Sprimo uses the tiny air sensors that detect volatile organism in the air and read it out in a scale and number range. it measures the saturation of the VOC – Volatile organic compounds in a place.

About the founders of SPRIMO,
In 2015 SPRIMO was developed by Ray Combs and Harold Han, PhD who felt there should be a smarter and more efficient way to breathe clean air in personal spaces. They have a story of how bad air quality affected lives of people and had to bring a way air quality can be detected.

SPRIMO: the air detecting device can be plugged into your Iphone and immediately pops up the application on your device and starts running the atmosphere test. The whole quality testing is on auto, so you do not need to power on SPRIMO each time. For the test reading, SPRIMO will show green for a good air, yellow for OK and red for not good or okay. The air testing device will also be rolled out for Android too.

Currently, SPRIMO is on a kick-starter, where a pledge of US$20 will get you one – assuming it reaches production, that is. The planned retail price is $40.

A bonus SPRIMO community allows users to also see a heat map of areas having a type of air quality.
