Futuristic Fashion Residential | Past Projects

  • The main purpose behind Spikey is to create a wearable item that extends both the sense of sight and touch. It is modeled after the canes used by blind and visually impaired people that help them feel where they are going, and by extension, replace their missing sense of sight. The idea behind this project was essentially a wearable cane that extends in all directions, enabling people to feel not just directly in front of them, but all around them.

    This project was begun during NuVu's Futuristic Fashion Sci-Fi summer session by Ginevra Zaccagnini, Jane Chang and Yvonne Hsiao and continued by Simon Zalesky and Ezra Morrison during the month preceeding fashion week.
