This project is solving the Space Wearables: Fashion Designer to Astronauts challenge. Description
Exoskin - an open sourced space suit
A spacesuit augmented by embedded electronics to extra vehicular activities (EVA)
Using arduino + sensors (and any other COTS wearable available), augment the space suit experience for easier movement, better health and safety. The concept emphasis on modularity and ease of use. A very natural interface is expected to be brought by the sensor network layer - a wearable undergarment - amongst the many layers of garment considered.
As well as the conceptual model, a rapid prototype has been developed.
Jack of all trades (do they really exists?!), tinkerer, creative thinker. I have an arduino and some sensors on hand, raspberry pi too - if you've got any COTS wearable device, feel free to bring them along we have plenty of space in the suit to incorporate everything. Worked on a wearable electronics project about a decade ago before going into the software engineer's trade to sharpen some knifes. Now making a return! Founder of Citizen Inventor.
