Next-Generation AirPi Available for Purchase Exclusively on Tindie

Award-Winning Weather and Pollution Monitoring System Allows Users to See Real-Time Air Quality Measurements

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/29/14 -- Tindie, the online marketplace for indie hardware, announces the launch of the next generation of the AirPi today. AirPi 1.4, an enhanced version of the original award-winning weather and pollution monitoring system, is available exclusively on Tindie.

The first generation of the AirPi is a powerful, low-cost weather station that plugs into the popular computer platform, Raspberry Pi. The original has been a top seller on Tindie since its launch in 2012, making over $30,000 in revenue during the limited time it was available. The second generation is set to triple that, with over $100,000 in pre-orders.

The AirPi was originally developed by a duo of London high school students as part of a competition to invent something using Raspberry Pi, a low-cost Linux computer, to make the world a better place. The AirPi records temperature, humidity, air pressure and light levels, as well as monitors carbon monoxide and nitrogen dioxide, primary pollutants in cities. Pollution in large metropolitan areas is a major concern for many city dwellers, and the AirPi helps provide consumers with timely pollutant information.

"Our original goal in creating AirPi was to provide consumers with accurate data that they couldn't obtain elsewhere," said Tom Hartley, an 18-year-old high school student from London and co-creator of the original AirPi. "The AirPi allows users to send a constant stream of data to the AirPi website, where anyone can log on to see the air quality close to their home."

The AirPi can be used for monitoring the indoor environment of your house and recording data about relative air quality, it also has the capability to add new sensors. There is also space for a GPS module if the owner wants real-time updates on the go. Customers can also add a live stream of pollution data to the cloud. The AirPi is being sold as a kit and comes with step-by-step instructions for easy set up and use.

"We are thrilled to be the exclusive home for the next generation of the AirPi," said Emile Petrone, founder of Tindie. "Tom is a role model for inventors everywhere. By utilizing modern hardware manufacturing techniques with a Raspberry Pi, Tom was able to provide a cutting-edge solution to a very important question -- what is in the air around us?"

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
