Fashion With An Environmental Mission: LED Dress Measures CO2 Levels
A new environmental awareness initiative has sprung a really neat piece of fashion that actually, in some ways, benefits from pollution.
The Climate Change Dress is a beautiful, embroidered design which had a number of collaborators including Alexandria Institute, the Danish Design School and embroidery company Forster Rohner. Contained in the embroidery, are a number of LED lights which make the dress sparkle. The catch is that these only light up when there is a CO2 presence, and the dress is actually designed to measure the amount in the local environment. The more pollution, the prettier the dress becomes.
The CO2 Dress is not designed to put a positive spin upon carbon emissions and global climate change, but rather, trigger environmental awareness amongst fashionistas and technology lovers.
