BB.Suit 0.2 is an outfit that cleans polluted air #WearableWednesday

NewImage

We’ve posted about the strange-looking BB suit before, but the latest iteration adds an air purifier for an even more interesting design. Via Dezeen.

Fashion and technology: a Dutch team is presenting a garment that purifies the polluted air surrounding the wearer, at this week’s Beijing Design Week.

Designers Borre Akkersdijk and Eva de Laat collaborated with Martijn ten Bhomer from the Eindhoven University of Technology, Daan Spangenberg Graphics, StudioFriso and Want to create a one-piece suit that has electrical threads woven into the fabric, enabling it to provide GPS, Wi-Fi and air-cleaning technologies.

“The BB.Suit started because everyone was talking about wearable technology, the bracelets, the glasses,” Akkersdijk told Dezeen. “We thought about how we could really integrate the electrical threads and sensors and not just stick them on.”

The BB.Suit uses cold plasma technology to create a bubble of clean air around the wearer.

“Cold plasma technology is a really high voltage that splits up the particles in the air,” Akkersdijk explained. “It grabs the dust and then it drops, so all the bad particles in the air go down to the ground.”

An air-quality sensor integrated into the suit counts the particles of carbon monoxide, methane and dust around the body.
