Air Quality Egg is a community-led air quality sensing network. It consists of outdoor sensors, an egg-shaped base station that wirelessly receives data and a global open data service that stores and gives access to collected sensor input.


The Air Quality Egg’s sensors measure CO, NO2, temperature, humidity and additionally you can upgrade sensors for O3, VOCs, radiation and particulates. The online network lets you construct embeddable graphs and has the ability to generate triggers for text messages or tweets.

Additionally there is a robust API which enables developers to build all kinds of apps based on the communities’ collected data.
