      Hi Pieterj good question! it is something I have invented! It is a new kind of cosmic ray detector that is embedded in the jacket. Basically when a cosmic ray of a certain energy hits part of the jacket, it will cause strips of small lights to light up so you know you’ve been hit. I think it’ll be amazing for you guys to see how often you are hit by a cosmic ray!
