To create a 3D Privacy Device, I dived into the research process by asking friends about when they felt a privacy breach and wished for a device to prevent that. A lot of answers I received were around their identity on the internet. By far, the cutest story was from my friend, Mel, who was very embarrassed as a seventh grader when her father found her diary, read it, and found out about her crush on the Filipino boy in class. Anyhow, I decided to make a “space creator” for this project. Watch and enjoy!
The space creator is a somewhat scary piece of clothing that creates a physical space around your unattended body – the back. It is inspired from having grown up in India where there is essentially no sense of physical space.
I used a tube shirt, double sided tape and artists tape to create this prototype. The bright colors make it cute and fashionable!
Let me know if you need to borrow it 😉
