Communicating emotions through transformational design

The E-Clothes Team created wearables in the form of a jacket that allows people to communicate with their bodies through color, light, and vibrations. They hope to address issues of initial prejudice and help people perceive and focus on emotions first, allowing this interaction to be the forefront of human conversation and perception rather than bias and assumptions of each other based on appearances. Their clothes also allow people with different abilities to track their health and connect to emergency services.
