Utope developed the system in cooperation with Fraunhofer IZM in Berlin, Germany. Translucent display areas on the front and back allow the light to be seen on the surface of the jacket. The Sporty Supaheroe Jacket is also moisture resistant and adapted for cleaning. You can find out more about it in the video below:
