Company introduces electronic dress
May 23 , 2014
This "personal space dress" begins to expand if its sensors detect someone getting too close.
New York native Kathleen McDermott said that she is inspired by wearable technology, but her art doesn't aim to protect those who are trying to avoid crowd on subways.
"I don't think that wearing a robotic dress is really the solution to problems of overcrowding or sexual harassment," she said, adding that the dress can be built by anyone using the instructions mentioned on her website.
