Urban Armor #2: The Personal Space Dress

A dress with two proximity sensors and a plastic armature that allows the dress to expand when a person comes too close to the wearer. The dress is the second in a series of wearable electronics for women, playful artworks investigating the relationship between technology, the body, personal and public space. Tutorials for the pieces in this series are hosted at urbanarmor.org

The Personal Space Dress was picked up by numerous news outlets, including Dezeen, Fast Company and The Wall Street Journal.
