Aegis Parka - Jacket that Warns and Protects from Air Pollutants

Share

A team of designers from Nieuwe Heren has recently unveiled its latest prototype: a jacket dubbed Aegis Parka that can sense and provide protection from pollutants in the air that are rather common for bid cities.

The built-in MQ-135 air pollution sensor is the one that detects ammonia, nitrogen oxides, alcohol, Benzene, smoke and CO2.

It would be interesting to note that the worse the quality of air is, the lighter the 40 integrated LEDs on the jacket glow, informing the wearer about poor air quality.

According to the firm, the "respirator" that was integrated into the jacket, can filter nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide, ozone, hydrocarbons, asbestos dust, black smoke diesel emissions, road dust and pollen.

In addition, the garment is treated the photocatalyst titanium dioxide, which activates its anti-fouling and sterilizing features when exposed to ultraviolet light.
