工作坊:DIY空气净化器 Smart Air Workshop

1 comment


While environmental issues become a big concern for everyone in the society, we need to figure out how we can solve daily environmental problems with our own efforts. It's said there are at least 2 air filters in every household in Beijing. And the air filters that are available on the market are not cheap, are there some alternatives? 


DIY your own Air purifier with Smart Air is the answer!



Let’s learn about the story behind Smart Air.


2013年,“书呆子”美国在读博士生Thomas Talhelm 在北京AQI爆表的时候做研究,他想要呼吸到干净的空气但是发现需要花几千上万块的价格购买昂贵的空气净化器!于是Thomas Talhelm(现芝加哥大学助理教授)在北京开始测试并研究制作他的DIY空气净化器,发现DIY和昂贵的空气净化器一样高效!所以他成立了社会企业 - Smart Air聪明空气,与空气污染行业高利润说不,通过举行空气污染DIY沙龙分享知识,旨在传播DIY精神,提高公众环保意识。如今,在北京(总部),印度,蒙古,我们相信,通过我们一直坚持的数据和测试方法的公开透明会让更多的人们意识到呼吸清洁空气不需要花大价钱。

In 2013, Thomas Talhelm was a poor Ph.D. student doing his research in Beijing when the airpocalypse struck. He wanted to protect his lungs but found most machines sell for thousands of RMB. Thomas (now Dr. Talhelm!) started building and testing low-cost DIY purifiers in his Beijing bedroom. Then he started Smart Air, a social enterprise dedicated to fighting insane profit-margins in the purifier industry and instead make clean air affordable for all. We believe that, in the long run, open data and transparent tests can protect people from slick marketing that tries to convince us we need to spend 10,000 RMB to protect our health.

    SAT考试 是申请美国大学的高中生不得不过的一关。关于SAT考试的话题也一直不断,时不时的取消成绩,延迟考试时间,甚至取消考试。虽说是有些大学不强制要求学生提交SAT成绩,但是想要提升自己的竞争力,大部分 美国大学申请 的学生都需要参加考试。 College Board 推出一个新的工具:Landscape Landscape 可以理解为一个背景环境信息盘,是 College Board 大约的两年前推出“环境背景信息中心”(Environmental Context Dashboard)的改版。 改版后的工具Landscape 考虑的因素与原来逆境分数的评估因素一致。Landscape 为学生在考试中的表现提供背景信息,囊括了学生的高中教学质量,学生成绩,学生的社区环境(例如高级课程设置和犯罪率)等等因素。

    DIY A Wireless Charger Into A Book How to make your own DIY book charger First, you should buy a small wireless charger. Look for one that is  small, slim, and doesn’t raise the temperature too much  while loading. Obviously, if the temperature goes too hot, it will burn the book. 2. Next, find an old book you are willing to cut up. Make sure the cover not too thick because the thicker the cover is, the weaker the signal will be. 3. Then, you should use a pencil to mark the shape and position of the charger on the page. 4. Next, use a sharp knife to cut a hole in the book pages where the charger will go. remove the paper 5. After that, you should also cut a hole for where the cable exits the book. 6. Then, hide the wireless charger inside the book and use tape to stick it. 7. Please note that, if you are using the same wireless charger I am using, you should get a QC 3.0 adapter or it won’t charge well. 8. This small wireless charger is too small to locate, especially when it is hidden under the book, so, you should find some thing to help to locate it. 9. If your phone do not have wireless charging feature, you should buy a receiver. After you finish, you will see the art just like here. Finally, It works. you can search on amazon :   Soopus-X wireless charger 15W   for this item i am using. video:
