CityOS Air

Parts

Things you need to supply

CityOS does not sell these devices, but you have few options how you can get one or few:

  1. You can build it yourself using these tutorials,
  2. You can come to our free workshops organized each time 5 or more people contact us with ready parts for their stations
  3. Pay one of the many students we trained to build you one.

Parts for the full version cost about 50 Euros depending where you order them, and we recommend paying students about 20 euros per station, if you want to go that way.

That is "Data Giver" version, you can also build "Data Taker" version no sensors - is is just lamp that gets data from server from your neighbors station - it will still light up like full setup version to notify you of pollution - but you will not be able to measure your indoor data or to contribute data for the movement.

This section lists the parts you will need to successfully build your own CityOS Air device (Boxy).
