Los Angeles creative studio Production Club have revealed designs for a pandemic-proof raving outfit called the Micrashell Futuresuit.

The studio has previously created installations and light shows for Skrillex, but with live events on hold temporarily thanks to COVID-19, they've shifted their focus to ways they can keep raves alive.

The designs include systems for “phone integration, beverage and vape consumption, voice communication, a subwoofer sound system, a video camera, fashion accessories, and a breathable helmet with unobscured views”.

Production Club’s Head of Inventions Miguel Risueño aka Mike808 said: “With everyone in our industry focused on developing virtual solutions we decided to focus on something more emotional, physical and inherently human so the industry as a whole could have a broader chance to recover promptly.

At this stage it's just a design, without any actual suits in production, but if lockdown measures have to continue for a while longer at least it provides a bit of hope that there's an active search for ways we can keep raving safely!
