The garment is designed to undergo a color shift when it detects carbon monoxide, particle pollution or radioactivity

With politicians in denial and nonstop carbon emissions released into the atmosphere, it is a fact that air pollution is only getting worse. Unfortunately, this has a direct impact on our health and the environment we are stuck living in. Cities suffer from this problem the most. That is why the creator of Aerochromics, Nikolas Bentel came up with a line of $500 shirts to detect air pollution.

There are three shirts in this collection thus far. They individually detect carbon monoxide, particle pollution or radioactivity. All of these shirts have different kinds of technology and patterns. The carbon monoxide shirt contains chemical salts that changes the patterned shirt when it comes in contact with carbon monoxide. The particle pollution shirt has two sensors that is connected to heat pads on the shirt. The polka dotted shirt changes color when pollution is sensed. As for the radioactivity shirt, this is still in the works. All the shirts eventually turn all black if there is a presence of strong air pollution.
