The FURVER fo.corset is a hard shell, vacuum formed corset with emotionally volatile fur made of fiber optics. Inspired by sea anemones and porcupines, this design offers body armor with animated boundaries. The FURVERs interactive fur is an extension of goose bumps, the hair we feel rise in anticipation. At the base of the neck is a motion sensor that acts as the eyes in the back of the head. When it feels someone approach, the fiber optic fur illuminates and rises up and to warn and protect personal space dimensions. This SENSOREE interaction retrains the wearer to tune into this latent sense.
