WHERE TO USE IT Any home, no matter whether you’re living in a busy city or in a country home in the middle of nowhere. It should be placed in a central location at about head height. WHAT it does The air we breathe should be as clean as possible – the health benefits are pretty obvious – but according to the makers of Foobot, the air inside our homes is about five times as polluted as the air outside. What you can do about it? Foobot measures indoor air and alerts you to any anomalies, such as excessive humidity, or lots of toxins or particles in the air. When Foobot is blue, the air is good, when it’s orange something is wrong, enabling you to act – whether it’s simply opening a window to let your house breathe, or giving your house a thorough dust and vacuum.
