Company Designs Futuristic Protective Suit for Attending Concerts
- It might not make its wearer the most fashionable person there, but a protective concert suit designed by a California firm promises to make seeing live shows a safe experience.
- Resembling a cross between the Hazmat suits worn in “Outbreak” and Mr. Freeze’s outfit in “Batman and Robin,” the Micrashell features a space age helmet, its own filtration system and even LED accent lights. “Micrashell is a solution for bringing people together safely,” says Miguel Risueno, head of inventions at the Production Club in California. “It’s a half suit that kind of takes your safety and your security in terms of being close to airborne particles or viruses to the next level.”
- So far, the Production Club has only made a prototype of the Micrashell. There’s no word on how much it’s expected to retail for.
- Would you wear an LED-accented Hazmat suit to a concert? If attending a concert is going to be a risky venture from this point forward, should artists stop performing live?
