LED-Powered Climate Dress Monitors Pollution

Who says fashion can’t have an impact on our environmental awareness?  The LED-Powered Climate Dress monitors pollution and displays a health warning based on local air quality.  Hundreds of LEDs are woven into this dress, linked to a microprocessor and a carbon dioxide detection unit.  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.
