The SQUID Shirt is a smart piece of clothing. It is a sensor-equipped shirt that monitors muscle output and efficiency during workouts. When connected to an accompanying app and an interactive website, the SQUID Shirt tracks biofeedback and progress in real-time.

Developed by a team of senior engineering and graphic design students from Northeastern University, the SQUID Shirt is made up of a compression athletic shirt with a slew of sensors attached to it. Targeting everyone from training athletes to amateurs looking to optimize their gym time, the SQUID Shirt ensures that people get the most out of their workouts while keeping exertion levels in a safe range.

The team's advisor Constantinos Mavroidis believes the SQUID Shirt can be on the market in two to three years.
