This self-defense jacket is controlled by a pressure sensor and Arduino, and propelled by a rotating servo. When worn, the jacket also contains laser cut “glass shards” made out of acrylic on the sleeves that appear to stick out of the bloodied flayed skin. The pressure sensors are sewn into the flaps on the left chest and right abdomen, so that the resistance drops when the sensor is pressed together with the wearer’s hands. This turns the servo motor near the neck of the garment, which lifts up the pieces of acrylic so that they stick outwards.
