Inspired by the phrase, That gave me goosebumps. Did you feel it too? The AWElectric is a duet design that animates the emotionally charged goosebumps, amplifies them, and shares the thrill. AWElectric is bioresponsive animatronic fashion that exhibits extimacy – externalized intimacy. These wearable soft robotic designs are composed of embedded fabrics with visual and tactile displays.AWElectric3dfabric-shimmerA series of biosensors visualizes breathing with a pulsing illumination. When awe is detected, 3d print Goosebump Fractal, pneumatic fabric inflates and flickers to animate the feeling. Then, AudioTactile, conductive embroidered “speaker” fabric plays the frequency to evoke goosebumps in the partner design as it tickles the skin to make hair stand on end. Share the thrill!
