Phil Worthington’s Electro-Shock coat combines wearable technology and augmented sensations that serve as a visual and actual warning to others- stay away.
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 offenderís body (non-lethal but definitely a bite).
I love it, love it, love it. I’d never need a coat like this because I’m a very happy-go-lucky person, but I know people who need this jacket sooo bad! I hate pissy people :\
