DetectAir.jpg

Detectair is a project by Genevieve Mateyko and Pamela Troyer that uses an air quality sensor to detect and communicate pollution levels to the wearer through embedded lights in the garment. Then the wearer can pull the collar up over her face to protect against pollutants. A nice idea, for sure, depending on what the collar’s made from. [via Fashioning Technology]
