Foobot Unboxing – Check your air is the best it can be!

vlcsnap-00013Airboxlad has sent over the Foobot for a little assessment. This box of tricks analyses the air in a p[particular room and gives you an outlook on how is it. Interacting with an app on your phone you can keep up to date with the air quality in that room wherever you happen to be. Alerts can be sent to you if there is a change.

Foobot uses internal sensors to check for pollution in the form of chemicals and particulate matter, which are up to five times more common indoors as a result of confinement and alerts you via its companion app and the LEDs on the device itself.

The device is sensitive to:
• PM2.5s – Particulate matter smaller than 2.5 micrometres, like dust, pollen and pet dander
• VOCs – Volatile organic compounds, toxic gases like formaldehyde and ammonia. This sensor is also sensitive to carbon monoxide, a potentially dangerous gas.
• Carbon dioxide – Exhaled naturally from humans. Not itself harmful, but indicative of poor circulation. This is measured via data from other sensors.
• Humidity – Low humidity can cause irritation. Excessive humidity let mould and dust mites grow.
• Temperature – Mostly for comfort, but still important to optimise

You can grab one off Amazon when they can keep them in stock!

The SoundPEATS Q16 Unboxing

6106Mgbv59L._SX425_Here we take a look at a truely wireless headphone arrangement, the SoundPEATS Q16. These are Dual Wireless Earbuds with separate batteries, Bluetooth 4.2 and a dash of Sweatproofing for the Sporty types out there. The In-Ear Headset also features a Microphone and a Secure Fit to keep them in place during whilst active.

SoundPEATS Audio is a relatively new company (2010) that has a wide range of music listening products for in-ear, on-ear, sport and business use. Their latest product is the Q16 True Wireless Bluetooth 4.2 Earphone. It’s a pretty nice and compact piece of gear because it’s simply two parts (one for each ear). It really is “true wireless” because there’s no connecting wire between your earphones or the streaming device.

The ideal application for the Q16 Bluetooth Earphone is sport or daily workouts. It really works well for anyone who is constantly on the go and doesn’t want the annoyance of wires. They’re quite simple to put on (just slips over and in the ear) and connecting them to your Bluetooth device is easy. Once you get them adjusted in the ears and connected the noise isolation is great but without blocking all your ambient noise. This leaves you to enjoy your music or talk on the phone while still remaining aware of your surroundings. It’s all hands-free.

The Q16 True Wireless Bluetooth 4.2 Earphone by SoundPEATS charges easily with a split USB cable (included) and has a battery life of about 6 hours.
