AQO passively displays the level of CO2 in the air #Feather #CircuitPython #ClimateChange #IoT #Adafruit

Via GitHub: Too much CO2 in the air affects how well brains function. The Air Quality Object changes color depending on air CO2 content. It’s meant to be a beautiful object which also passively displays information about the surroundings. It makes a normally invisible flow visible, so you can open a window when your air is getting stale.

AQO (Air Quality Object) by GitHub user qubist passively displays the level of CO2 in the air.

Chart displaying 5 levels of air quality. Each level has three data points: CO2 (ppm), Color, and Color on wheel. Ideal: 400–450 ppm, blue, 210; Acceptable: 450–600 ppm, green, 0; Intermediate: 600–1300 ppm, yellow/orange, 55–74; Bad: 1300–2500, red, 85; Dangerous: 2500–5000, maroon/purple, 95–120

Parts

Install the code on an Adafruit Feather M0 Express by dragging the contents of the code folder (libmain.py and helpers.py) onto the Feather’s CIRCUITPY drive. That’s it!

As 2022 starts, let’s take some time to share our goals for CircuitPython in 2022. Just like past years (full summary 2019, 2020, and 2021), we’d like everyone in the CircuitPython community to contribute by posting their thoughts to some public place on the Internet. Here are a few ways to post: a video on YouTub, a post on the CircuitPython forum, a blog post on your site, a series of Tweets, a Gist on GitHub. We want to hear from you. When you post, please add #CircuitPython2022 and email circuitpython2022@adafruit.com to let us know about your post so we can blog it up here.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.

    The SGP30 has two sensors inside, the data sheet shows the sensitivity for hydrogen and ethanol (alcohol) with unstated discrimination between other gases. The CO2 ppm output is a calculated, approximate value based on a model of human respiration. It’s referred to as an equivalent CO2 (eCO2) value in the documentation on https://www.adafruit.com/product/3709.

    The term "equivalent carbon dioxide" can be confusing since CO2e is often used as a measure of other gas’s greenhouse effect.
