"Trends in Society" Z-2 prototype suit cover layer design

JSC2014-E-035335 (14 April 2014) --- NASA invited the public to vote on three cover layer designs for the Z-2 prototype suit, the next step in NASA’s advanced suit development program. The winning design will be used for the design of the Z-2’s cover layer which will protect the suit throughout testing expected to begin in the Fall of 2014. "Trends in Society" is based off of just that: being reflective of what every day clothes may look like in the not too distant future. This suit uses electroluminescent wire and a bright color scheme to mimic the appearance of sportswear and the emerging world of wearable technologies. Photo credit: NASA
