Help crowdfund this open-source crowdsourced environmental monitoring platform

It’s almost impossible to talk about this project without going overboard on buzzwords, because the Smart Citizen Kit environmental monitoring platform is not only campaigning for funding at Kickstarter, it also has an open-source Arduino-compatible hardware design, an open-source API, and includes a mobile app and an interactive, crowdsourced data visualization available online.

Oh yeah, and the hardware is WiFi-enabled, available as a DIY kit and can be powered by solar cells. What’s not to like?
