Describe your Spinoff idea and the problem it solves.My spinoff idea is to make a 3-in-1 Carbon Monoxide alarm that can do 3 things instead of one. First off, it will alarm the house about the carbon monoxide and set off an alarm. Next, it will work by itself and start filtering out the air. Afterwards, it will purify it, turning it into oxygen. This is better than just having it alarm the house, while you can have 3 in one that does it all.
In your own words, what is Spinoff technology?Spinoff Technology is technology that has either been modified or created by NASA for the better of life and to improve it to help people out. Things such as filters and purifiers could help people out, so that is qualifying as spinoff technology.

Create your Own Spinoff
The spinoff technology I will modify is a carbon monoxide alarm so that it will be a 3-in-1 doing multiple things like purifying the air, filtering it, and alarming.
Some solutions to the problemcould be that if you use this if you purify or filter out the carbonmonoxide of your house thatwould be one solution. Anothersolution could be that maybepeople could use an alarm regularly so it can alarm the houseif theres carbon monoxide inthe house.
The test was uncapable to work as we could not build this and was not possible to build.
