This Is the Tech You Need for Toxic Gases #WearableWednesday #WearableTech

I have to say the Victoria University School of Design, New Zealand  has been uploading some sweet student videos for wearable tech. This week I happily stumbled upon FreeBreathe by Carl Gordon. This gadget is part super hero, part real world life saver. It appears to be a gem style 3D printed case housing a NeoPixel with a gas sensor peering out below. It’s hard to tell if the Arduino is within the case or located on the side of the harness (since Carl does reach for a switch there). However, the piece does seem to change color based on the detection of gases in the area. This wearable has a special place in my heart because I think people are often subjected to gases they are unaware of in their surroundings, and I’m hoping one day there will be an easy solution to sense even more varieties. For now, Carl has a great piece for his portfolio. If you are curious about gas detection, you should know we carry our own Adafruit CO, Alcohol and VOC Gas Sensor Breakout. You won’t be able to tell which gas it is detecting, but it will indicate if there are any of these gases present. So, get to work on your own wearable, but don’t forget to also keep pro detection devices mounted in your home. Learn what you want, but always play it safe.
