No-Contact Jacket Adam Whiton, Yolita Nugent 2006 pain, high voltage, exo-electric, electic current pulses, 80.000 volts, activated by the wearer, protection from violence, women, jacket, garment, non-lethal, critical life saving
The No-Contact Jacket is a wearable defensive jacket created to aid women in their struggle for protection from violence. When activated by the wearer, 80,000 volts of low amperage electric current pulses just below the surface shell of the entire jacket. This exo-electric armor prevents any person from unauthorized contact with the wearer's body. If an assailant were to grab hold of the wearer the high voltage exterior would interrupt their neurological impulses which control voluntary muscle movement. The neuromuscular system would be overwhelmed causing disorientation and loss of balance to occur and of course pain. The pain experienced is non-lethal but is enough to effectively and immediately deter contact with the wearer and provide a critical life saving oppurtunity for escape.

Things become smart ñ smart home, smart door, smart toothbrushÖ This smartness is generally perceived as the ability of objects to evaluate the environment and what is going on there realistically and to guide processes, if need arises ñ be it textile which responds to our body heat and adjusts its structure accordingly, or an airport concourse which delicately and personallyguides us to the right place according to the ticket in our pocket.

"Wearable Technology & Powered Art and Fashion Design" presents latest developments in the area of technologically augmented clothing. The program crosses the disciplines of fashion design, performance art, wearable computing and interaction design. The selected pieces envision a future in which our second skin, our clothes, become relevant element in our social life, in our communication and interaction with others. This is achieved by embedding electronics seamlessly into the textiles. After the miniaturisation of processors, sensors and batteries designers can now use these to create expressive and performative garments beyond the everyday experience.
