This project is solving the Space Wearables: Fashion Designer to Astronauts challenge. Description
What is the problem? According to Nik Moiseev, a Russian Cosmonaut whom involved in space suit designing for 26 years, there are some parts of astronaut space suit must be improved. He had highlighted some issues on youtube interview of The Next Generation Space Suit, such as the current space suit is very heavy, and limited designs consist of the American EMU Space Suit and Russian Orlan Space Suit only. However, both designs look old fashioned, very heavy, camera and lights mounted next to LEVA, limited visual, and in more important issue is safety.
What are the aims of this project? There are three aims identified for this proposal such as; 1) To propose an idea of a light wear space suit helmet design for safety concern 2) To promote fashion style for space suit 3) To extend research and development of space suit in Prism Visual Overlay
How to achieve the aims of project? In order to achieve the aims of project, we decided to propose a modeling prototype according to three main concerns such as 1) Safety Design 2) Cost 3) Research and Development. We proposed a simple design, modern look and stylish LEVA (space suit helmet). The color is supposed to be fully in white, however, in the proposed modeling we changed it to darker colors because we want to visualize the design, and look practical. We initiated to focus on LEVA because we want to improve a visual technology using Prism Visual Overlay. This is a new technology and can be implemented to save time, cost, and increase safety awareness to the astronauts or space travelers one day.
What are the advantages of this project? This project can help the astronauts or any space travelers to simplify their task such as taking pictures or searching information while doing a priority work. For instance, an astronaut is trying to fix the spaceship or ISS station, and at the same time, he can just give commands to the Prism Visual Overlay technology to capture pictures or searching information. j
