Imagine workout gear that reacts to your heartbeat, changing color to let you know your heart’s bpm while you’re working up a sweat. Radiate Athletics is trying to fund their Kickstarter campaign to make such apparel a reality with their advanced workout shirt that changes color according to your body heat, revealing muscular/vascular action while keeping you dry.

The Radiate shirt finally allows us to see calories as they burn, muscles as they reach their maximum output, vascular activation, and body temperature as it increases in key areas of your body. The shirt allows you to see the muscles you are targeting, the ones you may be neglecting, and their specific intensity level. Thanks to re-engineered NASA technology that changes the way electrons reflect light in the presence of body warmth, the shirt now lets you see your body’s personal heat signature (even as it fluctuates). It also keeps you cool by moving your body warmth away from your body while simultaneously translating your body’s heat into the color spectrum. It also sports revolutionary new fabric that feels like silk to the body, but has the support and durability that will carry you through the most extreme sports. If you pledge $25 or more you can get a Radiate Shirt that goes from various colors (like purple or navy) to white. There’s also a women’s tank if you give $30 or more.
