At the i-Wear Fashion Show in Paris, which focuses on the latest developments in intelligent clothing, the Aerogel Jacket will be shown.

"Absolute Zero" is a jacket developed to protect against harsh environmental conditions. It is based on Aerogel, the best insulating material in the world. Aerogel was used to insulate space probes sent to Mars.
It is the only material that can insulate down to minus 50°C and melts at 3000°C. It is also the lightest solid in the world and in its purest form can float on air. Its appearance is similar to dry ice and has been called ‘frozen smoke’. The jacket was designed and developed by Corpo Nove through its research and development lab, Grado Zero Espace, Italy.
