BIGnew Pal Technologies is a Shenzhen, China- based appcessory developer. Its first product is Air. Air!, an air quality detector designed and prototyped in the wake of reports about a terrible haze in Beijing last year.
It uses the Low Energy Bluetooth to transmit data of air quality and temperature to your iOS or Android devices. It’d alert you when air quality moves below a specific level.
It took less than six months for the team to build a prototype. After having raised over $20,000 on Kickstarter, it has been put into mass production and is expected to ship in January 2014.
UVindeSir is another product the company is working on (raising funding). It’s a UV index meter. Plugging it into your iPhone or Android phone, you can read UV Index on its app. The app will estimate how much time you should be exposed in any specific weather condition before reaching the maximum amount of UV.
The company is in talks with Moji, one of the most popular weather apps in China, Dayima, a period tracker app, and other Chinese apps to bring more functions to it.
Daxin partners with Ufactory on the tech side. Ufactory, also based in Shenzhen, is an appcessory solution provider.
The company said they were approached by some investors and in talks on a potential investment.
