A bra that converts into a gas mask (5 pics)
The Ig Nobel Prizes are a parody of the Nobel Prizes and are given each year in early October for ten achievements that "first make people laugh, and then make them think".
This year in the public health category won the creators of a bra that can be converted into a pair of gas masks. One for the wearer, one for a friend.
Dr. Elena Bodnar, who created this bra, said that the bra/gas masks could have been useful during the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.
Take a look at the photos of the ceremony.
