    Weathair is a jacket designed to face climate change conditions and allow data sharing for the community’s benefit. The jacket automatically inflates or deflates in response to external temperature changes perceived by a sensor or via direct user control of the inflation mode. Collected data via the sensor are shared with smartphones and combined with location data to provide real-time weather updates in big cities’ communities. Weathair is also a sustainable jacket thanks to its selling and repairing service system: obsolescent, broken components can be recollected by the Company, that will substitute / dismiss / repair / resell them as refurbished items to new customers.
