CHICAGO, Sept. 30 (UPI) -- A Chicago doctor said her invention, an "Emergency Bra" that can be quickly converted into a pair of gas masks, is now available for purchase online.
Dr. Elena Bodnar, who won the Ig Nobel prize last year at Harvard University for her unusual but useful invention, said the emergency bra is available for $29.95 at ebbra.com, the New York Daily News reported Thursday.
"We're just starting and there already is a huge interest," Bodnar said.
"Right now it's available just in B and C cup sizes and just in what I call 'original red,'" she said. "But in two months, we will be selling it in classic black and white as well."
Bodnar said she is currently working on a dress shirt for men that would convert into an emergency device.
"You can never be too prepared," she said.
