As illnesses and deaths due to air pollution is on the rise, scientists and designers are turning to wearable technology as a way to create cleaner air while waiting for governmental policies to catch up. One British artist, Kasia Molga, has challenged air quality head-on, with a series of pollution-detecting clothing. Called the Human Sensor, Molga’s outfits change colors and patterns in response to air pollutants, notifying both the wearer and those nearby of the presence of black carbon and poor air quality.
