The short version: Flow is an air quality monitor for the rest of us. It was designed to take pollution measurement out of the lab and into the public’s hands. Given the technical constraints this mission adds to the design of such a device, Flow is best-in-class for accuracy and reliability over time. In scientific […]

Now that we are well into spring, heading into summer, we thought we’d check in on how the spring cleaning went—and what kind of difference our community members are finding between their indoor and outdoor air quality. How we did it To do this experiment, we analysed 70 000 sets of continuous measures (6 millions […]

  Flow: a handheld revolution, and a milestone in the evolution of air quality monitoring. What’s so special about it? It’s the first environmental sensor of its kind to be this small, this portable, and this personal. Air quality monitoring usually involves many devices, many times the size of Flow, never before designed for lives […]

We‘re still months away from World Car-Free Day (September 22) but the topic came up early with a recent rejection of London Mayor Sadiq Khan’s plan to pedestrianise a large section of the ultra-busy Oxford street. Today, Oxford street’s terrible air quality breaches legal limits 80% of the time. In fact, since Jan 1, 2018, […]
