Aerochromics Shirt Makes You An Air Quality Monitor
New York City artist and designer Nikolas Bentel has decided that, as long as we're all walking around, we might as well check for air quality.
(Aerochromics Shirt Makes You An Air Quality Monitor)
Our air quality is deteriorating quickly and on a global scale. As more and more pollutants saturate the air we breathe, urban spaces must be closely monitored in order to guarantee that they are safe for people to live in. In fact, we estimate that 30% of the world currently breathes unsafe air – air at 60 AQI and above.
Current data collection stations are stationary, rendering them useless when you leave their vicinity. Because of this it is impossible to know what type of air you are breathing. Our Aerochromic clothing solves this problem.
Aerochromic shirts will ensure your safety in traversing our cities by warning you of harmful pollutants and radiation surrounding you. Our clothes will give you more agency over your body and wellbeing and the air you breathe in.
Don't we all want more out of our clothing? Like the polycarbon suit from William Gibson's 1984 novel Neuromancer, which also reflected characteristics of its environment? Or Philip K. Dick's scramble suit from A Scanner Darkly..
