MIT Media Lab Coat

MIT Media Lab Coat

The classic lab coat has been a reliable fashion staple for scientists around the world. But Media Lab researchers are not only scientists – we are also designers, tinkerers, philosophers and artists. We need a different coat!

Enter the Media Lab coat – Our lab coat is uniquely designed for, and with, the Media Lab community. It features reflective materials, new bonding techiques, and integrated electronics.

One size fits One – Each Labber has different needs. Some require access to Arduinos, others need moulding materials, yet others carry around motors or smart tablets. The lab coat is a framework for customization.

Ultra High Performance Lab Apparel – The coat is just the start. Together with some of the innovative member companies of the MIT Media Lab we are exploring protective eye-wear, shoe-wear and everything in between.
