Butterfly in the AIR

Butterfly in the AIR is an open innovation project supported by the French Mediterranean Air Quality Network Fablab. Its aims at fostering the collaboration between citizens and public organizations through the co-development of wearables (clothes, toys, etc.). The connected objects and associated app display the pollution levels to which the users are exposed and enable the users to communicate their activities through conductive patches. The project is built around an innovation hub where makers & solutions providers are invited to participate, prototype and test their products.
