Air Flutter

PX IV – Showing the surrounding air quality

This prosthetic is worn on the nose and communicates the air quality of the wearer's environment. It is inspired by gills that purify air and mimics how butterflies protect their wings - closing to camouflage and hide themselves in poor environments, while opening up in all its beauty when surrounded by clean air. This prosthetic is intended to benefit the community at large: it alerts of air pollution and empowers the desire and behavior to be surrounded by fresh, clean air. It can lead to a form of swarm intelligence which could benefit structural and behavioral adaptations for healthy, beautiful aging.
