Biologic & New Balanace Want to Put Their Bacteria in Your Workout Clothes

As if your workout clothes needed built in bacteria? No, not at all. Mine either. But we put silver into activewear now to combat odors, so how might this technology benefit you while training too?


Tangible Media Group at MIT Media Lab in collaboration with MIT Dept. of Chemical Engineering, Royal College of Art and New Balance is manufacturing clothes that when activated by heat during exercise, the bacteria in the garment will curl inward, which will then allow aeration of the clothing at strategic points, like the back, so you stay cool.
