The Dectectair vest aims to alert you to places where air quality is less than satisfactory, using a pattern of embedded LEDs located right across the chest which lights up to reflect the surrounding air quality. The worse the quality gets, the more a bunch of small vibrators will jump abound, alerting you to the situation. You can then wear the collar that doubles up as an impromptu medical/dust mask.
