Clothes Tell You If You’re Dehydrated
Paulien Routs has developed a sweat-sensitive textile coating that can provide a visual cue of hydration levels
Design researcher Paulien Routs has developed SOAK, a sweat-sensitive textile coating that provides a warning of dehydration. It can be applied to sportswear and changes color while the wearer is working out. The different colors provide a visual cue, showing the composition of their sweat and the condition of their internal health.
