design & technology

Design study for Jeremy’s halloween hoodie. I wanted to make it recall that one costume for the Squip with the cool design on the back because I read on the script that in “the play” scene, the Squip is wearing Jeremy’s cyborg halloween costume. So I gave the same design but the squip won‘t wear a hoodie, obviously.

Nirvware ‘Cyberdesk’ Headwear & Wrist Computer - Lisa Krohn (1993)

“Lisa Krohn has really embraced the — probably revolting — idea of the computer as an extension of the body.“ This concept incorporates video camera and sound amplification technology, telecommunications and micro-processing within a single system operated by a mouse worn on the chest, and viewed via retinal scanning. The idea is to "extend” the wearer’s powers of sight, hearing and voice, allowing him or her to make telephone or video calls and providing access to various databases. Composed of a network of electronic parts connected by a fiber-optic grid and set in elastomeric polyurethane mucus, the system would run on nickel metal hydride cells charged by body heat and ambient light via photovoltaic cells. Jurors concurred that technology for such a product may well be feasible in the near future.”
