Bad Air Day The Ur­ban Ca­nary of­fers a fun and in­for­ma­tive way to track air pol­lu­tion

Bespoke - - MALE SHOOT -

Draw­ing in­spi­ra­tion from the con­cept of the coal miner’s ca­nary, the Ur­ban Ca­nary is an elec­tronic pet that re­acts to pol­lu­tion. It was de­signed to be car­ried by a child as they go about their day. The idea is that, through var­i­ous sen­sors, it con­tin­u­ally mon­i­tors air pol­lu­tion and gets un­easy, and even anx­ious, as the lev­els rise. The bird’s emo­tions, which are ex­pressed through an LED light, as well as vi­bra­tions, are a way of let­ting the child know if they’re sur­rounded by health risks. And, at the end of each day, you can go to the app and find a sum­mary of the ar­eas, times, and amount of pol­lu­tion that the ca­nary, and your child, were ex­posed to.
