Water Canary: Toxic Sensing

Category: Politics,Water — Biella @ 3:58 pm

I love drinking water, talking about the future of water, and am especially passionate about the need for clean water. I hate the idea that we have polluted our oceans, our lakes, our rivers and this water of life, is of course, indispensable. Today, I found out about this amazing project, Water Canary, a project out of NYU’s ITP, which is building low cost sensors to detect toxins in water (in Africa in specific but it seems like every corner of the earth is quite eligible for such toxic sensing). All I can say is WoW. There is just so much potential for this type of project of informational visibility and I can’t wait to see it develop.


  1. Why don’t you just put a fish in there? It’s works great… just like a canary.
