The personal space dress

While traveling you probably are familiar with very crowded metros, busses, trains etcetera. You don’t have any personal space anymore and your privacy is gone.

Artist/ master student in Fine Art in Creative Media at City Univesity of Hong Kong Kathleen McDermott invented something to make sure you have more personal space in crowded places. She designed the personal space dress ‘Urban Armor’. Sensors in the front and back of the dress detect when a presence is too close to the wearer. When a presence is detected, motors are activated to open up the dress and create more space around the wearer. The dress closes when the area around it is detected as clear. This dress is a project for her Masters. Will we ever use it? Watch the video below to see how it works!
