Work Out Who Fancies You With This Weird Tech Accessory
Trying to deduce who is into you can be difficult at the best of times. Did that person brush by you because they think you're cute, or were you just standing in the way of the loo and wouldn’t move. IT’S JUST SO HARD TO TELL.
Luckily, students at the London’s Royal College of Art have devised a wearable that indicates when people might be interested. The device, that looks like tentacle shoulder-pads, is designed to light up, warm up and move in certain ways depending on who’s around you.
“Ripple” is an accessory that works by attaching to your back and shoulders, and vibrating when it senses courtship. Two cameras on the front and back analyse behaviour around you, and react accordingly. This means if your gaze meets someone else's, the weird tentacles will point in their directions (subtle much?).
If you begin to face the person, then you’ll receive a tapping sensation on your chest. It even warms up when you make eye contact.
According to the website, the Ripple is designed to mitigate the fact that “we are less present in real life.”
“Although we are constantly surrounded by people, we behave as if we were on our own.”
