These are the clothes of the future: smart-clothes. I can’t wait for these to be actually produced. Detectair is a fashion project by Genevieve Mateyko and Pamela Troyer. Their unusual clothes detect the pollution level in the air.

I find this pretty darn cool, especially if you live in a big, smoggy city. The quality of the air is transmitted to the wearer thanks to an ingenious LED lighting system, sewn into the fabric of the garment.

If the pollution level is too high, the collar can be pulled up over your face to protect against them, kind of like a gas mask.

Of course, if the pollution level is too high, you’ll probably need to get yourself a biohazard suit and a respirator to cover this outfit with.
