AirCasting is an open-source, end-to-end solution for collecting, displaying, and sharing health and environmental data using your smartphone. The platform consists of wearable sensors that detect changes in your environment and physiology, including a palm-sized air quality monitor called the AirBeam, the AirCasting Android app, the AirCasting website, and optional wearable LED accessories. By documenting and leveraging health and environmental data to inform personal decision-making and public policy, the AirCasting platform empowers citizen scientists and changemakers.  Related projects: AirCasting

PocketLab connects with a single button to a smart phone, tablet, Chromebook, or computer and instantly streams data that you can see and record. PocketLab measures motion, acceleration, angular velocity, magnetic field, pressure, altitude, and temperature. Using the PocketLab app, you can easily analyze your data, create graphs, and integrate your data with other software. PocketLab has the same features as lab equipment that costs thousands of dollars but is low cost and intuitive to use.  Related projects: 

PocketLab: $98 plus $6 shipping. U.S. sales only. El Nino Kit includes: Heat lamp, Digital balance, Soil collection tins, Infrared thermometer, Rain gauge, and a Graduated cylinder. El Niño and La Niña are important climatic phenomenon that affect the climate globally, causing flooding and droughts as well as changes in seasonal weather patterns. The GLOBE El Niño Field Campaign relies on trained citizen scientists to collect and share important local data to discover where and how much El Niño’s global impact affects local climates. You have probably observed changes in weather patterns in your community — a drier-than-usual spring, an extra-cold winter. This kit provides the tools you'll need to get involved in this project to learn more about the changes where you are and help NASA ground-truth satellite data measuring global snapshots.
