Some people are having allergy to airborne particles, such as pollen, dust, spores, artificial fibers, tiny insect body parts or maybe butterfly poop! In this case, they have no option, but must always keep the house free from the particles!
However, it’s very hard to measure, whether your house is free from the airborne particles, as they’re too tiny to be spotted! So, what can you do to overcome this problem? Well, easy, you can build a simple device – Air Sampler for capturing airborne particles, so you can examine it under a microscope later!
Well, the idea for building the Air Sampler is quite simple. It’s a timer-controlled fan, which is producing constant airflow over a sticky tape. By doing this, it makes some of the airborne particles stick and attaches the tape on a slide.
During the project, you might need to perform some dissembling, drilling, twisting and assembling works. Although it’s not a very tough job, but it requires you to spend several hours on it. Hence, this project is suitable for those who want to kill their time during weekend!
