Touch And Heat

Enhance the touches from your social experiences - with heat! This jacket absorbs the touches of surrounding human beings and provides you with a nice warm sensation on your lower back. Get someone to touch you on the special places and you'll get the extra heat! Truly Swedish.

During my time at Malmo University Sweden I was produced this prototype jacket in a group project with 2 others: Fredrik Lundh and Sofie Olsson. We produced various prototypes, test electronics packages and other variously related things. The images below are a kind of visual diary of all that effort.
