Emergency Bra

Last year, Dr. Elena Bodnar won the Ig Nobel Prize in Public Health for her Emergency Bra. Having seen first hand the devastating effects of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster, she designed it to filter out the radioactive particles found there. In the event of a similar emergency, just remove the bra and break it into two usable air filter masks.

Dr. Bodnar is thought to be currently working on a “counterpart device for men”, although the configuration is unknown.
