Wearable Warnings Electroshock Clothing
Want to keep creeps away from from you, but don’t have a pair of nunchucks with you at all times? Wearable Warnings, a project by Philip Worthington at the RCA in London, is a prototype coat that helps you do just that. From their website:
The prototype design is a coat with warning strips of fur that become electro-statically charged in situations where the wearer feels threatened. When charged the fur begins to stand on end; a visual indication that the wearer is uncomfortable. If someone invades the wearer’s personal space they will begin to feel a second warning; as they enter the coat’s electrostatic field they will feel tingling skin sensations and their hair will stand on end. The fur will begin to twitch toward them and emit crackling sounds. If the ‘threat’ proceeds to touch the fur then 100,000 volts of electro-static charge discharges from the fur, into the offender’s body (non-lethal but definitely a bite).
They forgot to mention that it makes you look like a B-movie monster.
