'Sensly' is a line of portable pollution sensors that act as air quality readers, transmitting the analyzed readings to a smartphone. Powered by battery or USB, Sensly can detect levels of varying gases at home, work or even on the subway.

Hoping to encourage people to make changes where they can and push for action where they can not, the creators want to get all air quality to a healthy level. Driven by the knowledge that some levels of pollution in London are 50% over EU limits, Sensly strives to push for clean air.

Whether it's excessive carbon dioxide that can lead to headaches or dizziness, or a more fatal leak of carbon monoxide, this pollution sensor can let smartphone users know immediately. Especially appealing for those with asthma, breathing difficulty or other lung concerns, Sensly is there to keep people safe.
