Clothes that highlight air pollution are coming to London

17 August, 2016

The only reminder of the dirty air we breathe is usually just the black stuff that lines every commuter's nostrils, so it's easy to forget that those sputtering exhaust fumes kill up to 9,500 people per year in the capital.  Imagine if there was a way to avoid the most heavily polluted areas of the city through the clothes you wear. This is the thinking behind Human Sensor, a high-tech fashion range designed by media artist and environmentalist Kasia Molga, in collaboration with Professor Frank Kelly and members of the Environmental Research Group at King's College London.
