Urban Armor Dress Expands To Provide Personal Space

May 20, 2014


This is the Urban Armor Dress designed by Kathleen McDermott. It has two proximity detectors that cause the dress to expand outward like an umbrella if somebody is standing too close. Once their presence is no longer detected, it closes back up again. Plus as a bonus deterrent it sounds like a robot dying the whole time it's moving. Alternatively, drop a stink bomb and put on a gas mask. That's what I do and I've never had anybody stand near me on the bus. Hell, sometimes even the driver gets off and I can sit there ringing the bell all I want. *ding ding* This is my stop! Just kidding. *ding ding* It's actually this one. Kidding again, we haven't moved! One time I even sat in the driver's seat and pretended to steer. And that, children, was the best day of my life. *closes story book* Now you all get to bed before the monsters come out and tear your f***ing arms off.

Keep going for a video demo of the dress, as well as a robotic scarf that covers your nose and mouth if it detects 'urban pollutants' like alcohol, cigarette smoke or car exhaust.

    While the concept is good, considering in Japan there are are allegedly a lot of perverts on trains (Though where I am i have never seen one...I am also a guy though) but If you get on a train at rush hour the trains are so packed you just have to squeeze on and for go "personal space".

    the self lifting skirt seems counterintuitive for dealing with train perverts

    Actually it is China. University of Hong Kong, the stuff written in the station and train are in Chinese and both models are Chinese.

    I don't know, if I hadn't seen this, it would seem like the skirt was opening like the flowers of a petal, or "presenting" for me. Curse this KAVORKA!

  • The Alchemist

    Yep. I thought it was an invitation too.

  • The Magnificent Newtboy

    There is something slightly flirtatious about it. Maybe if it sprang out really fast like the dilophosaurus in Jurassic Park...

  • i can do that wearing a dress but only in front

  • ODwanKenObi

    I can do that wearing a dress but only in the back

    I'm sure just wearing that hideous thing in any form will give you all the personal space you could ever want.
