Emergency bra

Dr. Elena Bodnar holds up one of her 'Emergency Bras', as John Durant (R), Director of the MIT Museum, and Gus Rancatore wear the bras as facemasks, at the MIT Museum in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Elena Bodnar of Hinsdale, Illinois and colleagues who designed and patented the bra that can be quickly converted into a pair of gas masks, one for the brassiere wearer and one to be given to some needy bystander, won the 2009 Ig Nobel Public Health Prize.
