The "technology" spacesuit design for Z-2 combines elements from past spacesuits and advanced technologies, such as electroluminescent wire and light-emitting patches across the upper and lower torso to identify crew members. The design also features collapsing pleats for mobility and abrasion-resistant panels on the lower torso.
