Color-changing gloves warn wearers of hazardous substances
Accurate color indicators have been used in the chemistry research field for the past century thanks to the commercialization of solutions such as universal indicator, to help check if material is dangerous. We’ve previously a number of innovations take advantage of similar technology — from syringes that warn if they’ve been used to LED ice cubes that track the amount of alcohol consumed. Now the Fraunhofer Research Institution in Germany has created gloves that indicate if a toxic substance is being handled by changing color.
