For digital artist Shubhaya Sinha, she envisions a future where the very clothing these players wear help out in keeping their bodies cool.
“A personal project, designing a body suit for football players which enhances their body’s natural ability to stay cool while playing the sport. It is a combination of the human body’s natural ability and sophisticated material science used to conceptualize a body suit for Adidas.”

With Sinha’s Cooling Body Suit, this might just be a possibility. The suit itself would be developed using shape-shifting polymer fiber. Whenever the player sweats – specifically in those six given areas where the superficial veins are located – the suit’s material will open up to increase ventilation. As a result, this will increase evaporation and enhance the player’s ability to cool down the entire body.
For now, the Cooling Body Suit is merely a concept design. But as players continue pushing themselves, the more we’ll have to ensure they’re protected. These suits could very well be the answer.
Sports players aren’t the only group of people who might benefit from temperature-regulating clothing. When you think about it, it would certainly have the potential market for nearly everyone who preside in areas or regions with high temperatures. In fact, as climate temperatures continue rising due to climate change, having clothing that’ll potentially accommodate these temperature increases will become all the more important over time. No person will ever have to die from heat exhaustion ever again. It’s not just a clothing revolution; it’s a health revolution!
