The Coat is designed by Stijn Ossevoort from Electronics Laboratory (IfE) as part of his Wearable Dreams work. It would be really great to integrate this coat with the Prudent Avoidance devices created by Kathleen Brandt & Brian Lonsway’s which track electro-magnetic frequency (EMF) exposure using an ELF recording device, location with a GPS, and imagery with a camera. Their Prudent Avoidance devices collect data and input these into:
an evolving online database and wearable data collection device, the work explores the contradictions of data collection, measurement, and representation when used to measure things like "human risk."
Now if all that could be esthetically designed into a comfortable and unobtrusive piece of clothing, with audio recording capabilities, a Galvanic Skin Response (GSR) data gathering device all powered by a solar pack, which then seamelessy stream these data into some exquisite visualizations I would be the most stylin’ data gatherin’ real time experience mappin’ womyn around!
It might even let me sensuously map emotions in motion and know where I am going too!
