awpOur project aims to make better, safer and more user-friendly clothes for all people who will travel to space. We believe that our ideas will contribute to easing astronauts work as well as making it simpler for future space travelers. The financial aspect of the realization of the project has also been taken into consideration.
This project is solving the Space Wearables: Fashion Designer to Astronauts challenge. Description
We made a few modifications to the already used space suit. One of the many modifications to the suit is the incorporation of cameras in the front and the back of the helmet. The overview of the back will help the space traveler be aware of his surroundings. The front camera will record what is happening or simply take photos. The other modification is the OLED in one of the upper front corners of the screen. It will show different information about the environment, the suit, the vital signs of the traveler and the overview from the back camera. And the last modification is the gloves which will replace the entire movement system and simplify the way the traveler moves in space.
