Here a video presentation of Bright Scarf (app.3 min).
Bright Scarf is a fashionable scarf that detects and alerts its wearers by flash lighting if pollution reaches level more than safe limit and keeps them safe from air pollution, bacteria and road trafic at night time: Users can push a button in order that the scarf lights continuously, in order to be visible at night. Wearers are protected with the built-in mask from polluted air and bacteria.
As being an on-board technology product, it does not need to be connected to any wireless networks, and it is completely washable. Air pollution has always been underestimated alike its impact on human beings. We are changing the way we protect ourselves by creating an innovative detection system. Everyday, wearers can become more consciously aware of their health threatening level of pollution in their personal environment. We believe it can have a significant positive effect on society by decreasing the impact of harmful consequences on a long term such as heart diseases, lung cancers, pregnancy issues and more.
By offering the perfect balance of protection and trendiness, we aim to answer to customer's needs such as their fashionable and protection needs and contribute to a healthier lifestyle.
Bright Scarf is created by Cognitive Design, a start-up born in the maker-space/hackerspace L'Openlab.
