This one-piece outfit provides GPS, Wi-Fi and air-cleaning technologies

You wouldn’t know it just by looking at it, but this one-piece suit has electrical threads woven into the fabric to enable it to provide GPS, Wi-Fi, and air-cleaning technologies. First, how on earth does it clean the air? One of the designers explained that ‘cold plasma technology is a really high voltage that splits up the particles in the air.

It grabs the dust and then it drops, so all the bad particles in the air go down to the ground’. There’s also an air-quality sensor integrated into the suit that counts the particles of carbon monoxide, methane and dust around the body.

This outfit was designed by Borre Akkersdijk and Eva de Laat, in collaboration with Martijn ten Bhomer, Daan Spangenberg Graphics, StudioFriso, and Want. It was first presented at the annual SXSW festival this year with only GPS and Wi-Fi capabilities, but ‘the team decided to tackle a local problem when developing a garment to show at Beijing Design Week’.
