The Emergency Bra is a protective garment that transforms into two respiratory face masks in case of an emergency.

Caught in a disaster? You'd better hope you're wearing the Emergency Bra. Simply unsnap the bright red bra, separate the cups, and slip it over your head -- one cup for you, and one for your friend.

Dr. Elena Bodnar won an Ignoble Award for the invention last year, an annual tribute to scientific research that on the surface seems goofy but is often surprisingly practical. And now Bodnar has brought the eBra to the public; purchase one online for just $29.95.

"The goal of any emergency respiratory device is to achieve tight fixation and full coverage. Luckily, the wonderful design of the bra is already in the shape of a face mask and so with the addition of a few design features, the Emergency Bra enhances the efficiency of minimizing contaminated bypass air flow," explains the eBra website.

It sounds silly, but Bodnar, a Ukraine native who now lives in Chicago, started her medical career studying the effects of the 1986 Chernobyl nuclear plant disaster. If people had had cheap, readily available gas masks in the first hours after the disaster, she said, they may have avoided breathing in Iodine-131, which causes radiation sickness.

The bra-turned-gas masks could have also been useful during the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, and for women caught outside during the dust storms that recently enveloped Sydney, she said.

Yeah, but can you put them back together (without a sewing machine) as a bra once the emergency is over?

If you made activated carbon crotch panels, you could make a similiar product with thongs.

Yes. There is no damage involved in converting the bra from uplift to emergency mode. I would assume that like any other barrier mask, it's respiratory function is good for only a few hours, one time. It would still be fine as a regular bra once it was decontaminated, though.

Frankly, the red one is kind of cute.

I think these should be issues to all the hot ladies out there. Then have many civil drills to test their readiness.

I think this is a bad idea, men from all over will cause so many emergencies just to get women to take off their bra's :D

I would submit that this thread just moved from code orange to code red. Now is the time for all good gals to come to the aid of this thread! Instructional graphics would be helpful, you know, for the cause. :D

I'm guessing they don't work if you are beyond regular D territory.
