Stop breathing toxic air

According to research listed on Clairy’s kickstarter page, our indoor air is 5 times more polluted than the air outside our homes or offices. We spend on average 90% of our time indoors and inhale over 10.000 liter of air every day (500 ml x 15 breaths/minute x 60 minutes/hour x 24 hours/day).

The solution is a high-tech flowerpot

Their product seems to have the ability to filter volatile compounds of indoor air. Listed as an “incredible smart flowerpot and natural air purifier, powered by real plants.” It is made from ceramic and designed in Italy. It comes with an electronic component. A fan directs the used air from your home or office into the pot where it is detoxified. This is supposed to make the air you’re breathing better for you.

There is an app for that

The tech component of the flowerpot has a Wi-Fi module that sends real-time updates to your smartphone. It can check on your indoor air quality, temperature and humidity with its sensors. From there Clairy sends alerts and informs you of the toxin levels of the room which it’s in, as well as the temperature and humidity levels.
