Kuki is an air quality pet for kids that monitors, engages and educates through gamification techniques and an air filtration system. The wearable device and app aim to better inform children and parents about the air around them, sparking behavioural changes and advocacy for clean air strategies, encouraging long term change. Whilst kuki may not directly solve air pollution, it has the potential to improve health, save lives and change behaviours, encouraging long term change from the bottom up. It also takes into account a range of future possibilities in relation to air pollution.
