How's the air up there?

How’s the air up there?

Aerio is a nifty gadget that aims to provide users with information about their environment’s air pollution. Paired with the user’s smartphone, the device transmits data to a central network with other devices also giving real-time air quality updates. More than just a sensor, it also brings awareness to the user’s own individual carbon footprint in hopes of encouraging eco-conscious behavior throughout the day.

The Less is More Phone

The Less is More Phone

While the majority of modern smartphones focus on more, more, more to increase productivity, the CELs phone was developed from the belief that less distraction and “uni-tasking” rather than multitasking is the key to being productive. It focuses on just 4 basic functionalities: music, photography, fitness, and communication. What it lacks in apps (even internet!), it makes up for in a cool, quirky aesthetic and a straightforward, user-friendly interface!
