The air inside our homes is up to 8 times more polluted than outside. Jacques Touillon, CEO and co-founder of Airboxlab, at the origin of the project, had the idea to make visible what was not.
Foobot was born with the aim of helping its users take control of the air quality of their houses. Capable of detecting the main pollutants such as volatile organic compounds, fine particles, temperature and humidity, it will allow you to know the level of pollution of your interiors 24/7. Foobot has a first reading on the device thanks to a system of LEDs (in blue the air is of good quality, in orange of poor quality), as well as a free mobile application which allows you to reach your history of pollution.
You will thus receive notifications when you exceed the pollution thresholds set by the World Health Organization and will be able to determine the source, whether it is one of your activities or the materials you use .
Airboxlab was created in 2013 and now has a team of about fifteen people. Launched in early 2015, Foobot is now used by more than a thousand people and has analyzed more than 8 million data related to indoor air pollution!
