Radon gas meter for the consumer market
On 5 January 2017, the Norwegian technology company Airthings introduced its new smart radon gas meter called Airthings Wave. It was launched during the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, the world’s largest consumer electronics event. Launching a product at a leading global event is a rare occurrence for a Norwegian technology company. The designers at EGGS are proud to have contributed to designing and developing the product, digital elements, product identity and the company’s visual profile. The result is an intuitive, but potentially life-extending product.
Affects millions of people
Radon is a radioactive gas that seeps out of stone and soil in the ground. In the U.S. alone, radon is the second largest cause of lung cancer after smoking and leads to 21,000 deaths annually. Radon can seep into homes, office buildings and school buildings through cracks and small openings and contaminate the air. That is why radon is considered a major health risk that affects millions of people around the world.
Easy measurement of radon levels
In the past, measuring whether there was radon in a building entailed a tediously long process and the use of professionals. A full evaluation could take up to two weeks. Airthings Wave lets you easily measure radon levels yourself using an easy-to-install ceiling sensor that automatically synchronises with an app on our mobile phone via Bluetooth. It gives you accurate measurements, collects data over time and lets you monitor radon level, changes and take measures if the levels are hazardous to health.
