New Smart Space Suits for the ISS
Orlan MK space suit

ISS crew plans complete replacement of current space suits to modernized ones.
      First upgraded space suit will arrive to the orbit at the end of 2008. New space suits are fifth generation of Orlan suits and first Russian computerized models.
      While putting new suit on, it tells a cosmonaut what systems should be checked in what order before leaving the International space station. In case of emergency smart clothes will beep and prompt its owner how to behave.
      New suits will be able to self-check and to inform cosmonauts about any trouble with the suit.
