NASA-funded Faculty and students at Florida Polytechnic University are developing a critical component for the next generation of spacesuits that will not only make astronauts more comfortable and efficient, but will also keep them happy. The Smart Sensory Skin in the "happy suit" would use wireless sensors to monitor blood pressure and pulse and adjust temperature, light exposure, light colour, and oxygen levels for reducing stress. The new technology will detect emotional and physical deficiencies in astronauts through wireless sensors that will then send an immediate response to improve the “atmosphere”, and adjust the astronauts’ environment to fit their individual needs. The adjustments include changes in temperature, light exposure, light color, and oxygen levels.
