NASA has developed a wearable CO2 sensor that sends CO2 concentration data to a base station that displays and logs the data.

The testing of the device during the NEEMO 18 mission underwater off the Florida Keys has proven successful, leading to further refinement of the design and eventual launch to the ISS in 2017, where astronauts will don the device and verify the formation of CO2 pockets in enclosed quarters.
