ECO Sensors announced that it is launching SPARROW, a wearable environmental health and safety monitor that measures carbon monoxide (CO), along with temperature, pressure and relative humidity.
Like a home CO detector, SPARROW has audible and visual alarms to alert you to life threatening situations, but it goes much further by alerting users about unhealthy pollutants everywhere they go via SPARROW App.
An Indiegogo campaign for the product will kick start at the upcoming CES. SPARROW has partnered with OtterBox to make SPARROW portability easy, and Drayson Technologies to provide hyper-local air pollution data powered by CleanSpace, and dynamic calibration by Sensyne.
SPARROW is designed for the OtterBox uniVERSE Case System that allows for interchangeable accessories to slide directly onto the back of the phone case. It can also be attached to clothes, bag, purse, stroller or bike.
“We are excited to be working with the OtterBox uniVERSE Case System because you are never without your smartphone and now never without protection from carbon monoxide exposure,” said Dr. Joseph Stetter, President of ECO Sensors.
Low level exposure to carbon monoxide over time is especially harmful to infants, children and pregnant women. It is also harmful to the elderly, asthma, COPD and anemia sufferers, and even healthy adults when they are exercising.
Lord Paul Drayson, Chairman and CEO of Drayson Technologies, said: “This collaboration is testament to the successful worldwide deployment of the CleanSpace network, and the demand for Sensyne’s state-of-the-art machine learning capabilities.”
