Puff Pollution Meter Shows Off Your Vehicle’s Emissions

Puff Pollution Meter Shows Off Your Vehicle’s Emissions

It’s cool to be environmentally friendly, and it’s even cooler to show everyone on the road how much you love Mother Earth. You can do it with the Puff illuminated pollution meter.

This interesting project was made by designer and artist Karolina Sobecka for the World Maker Faire in New York City. Created to raise motorist awareness of their carbon emissions, the Puff comes with two essential components. The first is a cartoon-like cloud that attaches to the vehicle’s exhaust pipe, while the second is an iPhone app that monitors the vehicle’s emissions. When you car produces lots of carbon, the cloud changes color. This alerts both the driver and everyone on the street as to how much pollution is being spewed into the atmosphere.

So how about it? Would you put a Puff on your car to show the world how much you’re polluting the air? Do you think it will actually cause people to think before taking their cars out or is it just a cute gimmick? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
