Unveiled at CES 2017, the Flow is an air-quality tracker. Tap the capacitive touch button on front and 12 multicolor LEDs give you current as well as historical air pollution exposure feedback at a glance. A 360-degree air intake senses air quality fast, measuring particulate matter, nitrogen oxides, ozone, volatile organic compounds, temperature and relative humidity.
