Even-Hotels-Branded-Ribbon

We’re looking for the next breakthrough in healthy travel. So we partnered with EVENⓇ Hotels to find the next big wellness necessity with a brand new competition called Mission Wellness: Seeking the Next Healthy Travel Innovation. More than 100 businesses gave us their best pitch, and we’ve narrowed down the field to the final 12—which means it’s time for you to get a say! Check out Foobot below (and take a look at the businesses it’s up against), and cast your vote by October 20.

Foobot

Portable air quality monitor

The problem

When you arrive in a new place, you have no idea what the air quality is like. Are allergens floating everywhere? Is there high pollution or out-of-control mold? You could be breathing in more of it than you think, but there’s no way to actually be sure unless the hotel you’re in has built-in environmental monitors (and many don’t).

The solution

Think of the Foobot as a Fitbit for your environment. It has internal sensors that measure overall CO2, particle, and volatile organic compound (VOC) toxicity levels, as well as temperature and humidity. So you can see what’s going on 24/7, and adjust your air conditioner, purifier, or thermostat accordingly. Plus, you can access an indoor air quality score through the Foobot smartphone app, which can sync with home environmental gadgets like Nest, Ecobee, and Alexa.

The takeaway

Breathing clean air is essential to lung health, good sleep, and a slew of other wellness functions. The Foobot is small enough to fit in your carry-on, so there’s no reason to not bring it on your next trip—especially if there’s a chance pollution or allergens will be present.

Could this be the winner? Check out the competition and cast your vote here! (And do it fast—polls close October 20.)
