Nien Lam and Sue Ngo, graduate students in NYU’s interactive telecommunications program, took inspiration from the good old Hypercolor t-shirt to create Warning Signs—a shirt that changes color when you are exposed to large amounts of carbon monoxide.
More specifically, the shirts are printed with a heart or a set of lungs with veins that turn a bright blue with exposure. Check out the demo video after the break.
The duo is also working on a shirt that will detect when the wearer has consumed too much alcohol. Naturally, that version will feature a color changing liver.
