NOMINATION OF THE WEEK: SOLAR CHARGED JACKET

These smart textiles just keep getting smarter! The Solar Charged Jacket by Vollebak acts as if it’s alive, absorbing light like a plant and re-emitting it slowly over time. You can lay it out in the sun, under a light bulb or draw on it with your smartphone flashlight. By turning you into a human-sized firefly, this clever tech could be a real life-saver if you ever run into trouble while enjoying the outdoors.
