The Department of Environment and Heritage Protection provide a feed of Air Quality sensors across Brisbane, but it takes a fair bit of effort to go look at this every day before you leave home.

This information is particularily relevant to people with sinusitis, allergies or are asthmatic as knowing how bad the air quality is means you can adjust your daily routine to cope, including taking an anti-histamine.

Histameanie is an internet connected display that, using the feed provided by DEHP will warn you of the air quality in your targeted area by displaying a color relating to the current air quality.
