Post from Beyond Earth 2019

Beyond Earth 2019 | Past Projects

  • The main idea is that gravity is no longer present on Earth. and due to strange occurrences that make the Earth spin at double it's speed, the winds also go double their normal speed with double the amount of force. There is a problem with people, animals and buildings floating off the face of the Earth. If these conditions were to indeed take place, the people would not be able to live on Earth without a way to hold themselves into the ground as if they were a plant. Yet as humans, we are built to move and would need a way to mobIlize ourselves as well. Our final wearable provides a rigid structure to protect yourself from the outside environment and wind. It offers long legs that have a heavy weight to plant yourself into the ground attached to a piece similar to a mechanical spider claw that helps mobIlize the wearable.
