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.
