This project is solving the Space Wearables: Fashion Designer to Astronauts challenge. Description
Our mission is to design a space suit based on the actual one. Our proposal solves a lot of problems related to everyday life of astronauts, EVAs, comfort and mobility. We've been thinking about a new conceptual and empirical interaction with near-space and terrestrial environment such to improve mobility and interaction during Eva or the everyday life on orbit. Augmented reality will also assist astronauts during maintenance and give instant help in case of an emergency - hands-free document reading, lifesigns/sensors readout and image referencing just to list some possible benefits) We're also trying to solve some issues regarding the difficult movement offered by HUT and EVA gloves which gives an astronaut's hand fatigue during prolonged activities. Our solution also gives some new ideas about phisical training in space, to achieve even better results with the modifications we made to the actual suits.
