Abstract

What if you could wear your online identity on your sleeve? We aim to design a wearable status symbol, an accessory that would display one’s online status on their arm, for all to see. For prototyping, we will experiment with iron, wood, plastic, fabrics and ink. Our outcome will be an accessory hidden in the sleeve. When moving, this piece will activate to expose the wearer’s online status to the world.
