LED Dress Monitors Pollution

This dress below monitors pollution and displays a health warning based on local air quality. A carbon dioxide detection unit and microprocessor are linked to hundreds of LEDs which have been woven into the dress.

The lights pulsate based on the local carbon levels– the faster the pulse, the more dangerous the air conditions. While this concept may not be practical enough for mass production, we feel that environmentally conscious fashion like this is certainly progress in the right direction for the creative world.
