The Squirrel Mobile Pollution Monitor is a device, created by Shannon Spanhake, that measures pollution levels and can interface with various mobile devices. I developed a playful interface for Shannon to showcase the device’s capabilities. The interface displays on a cell phone the current pollution levels (ppm) and animates environmental changes based on those levels.
The interface was designed to be friendly and entertaining. As pollutions levels would rise, thunder and lightening would sound and appear. As pollution levels would lower, the sun would rise and clouds disappear. The grass length and color indicate pollution levels over time.
