This Is NASA's New Space Suit

The votes are in. NASA’s next high-tech space suit will be “Technology,” a futuristic suit equipped with a luminescent turquoise flare. In March, the space agency issued a call for the public to choose their favorite of three designs; 63% of voters chose “Technology.” Significant upgrades to the design include a hard upper torso and greater hip and shoulder mobility. Sadly, the $4.4 million suit is still a prototype that needs to undergo testing and will not be seen in space anytime soon, The Huffington Post reports.
