As someone who has a hard time expressing herself, it can often cause tension with people i interact with. People today use many different technologies to express themselves or let off steam. I can’t tell you how facebook updates i’ve read that say things likes “uh, some boys are so dumb!!!” or “thanks professor who lectures ten minutes past the end of class everyday, NOT!”
Technology can allows us to express ourselves without having to actually tell people how we feel. When you have an emotional change, you heart rate often changes along with it. When you are sad you heart rate goes down, when you are embarrassed or excited you heart rate goes up. This jacket allows the wearer to display more accurately how they are feeling.
The light on this jacket are placed on the sleeves, adding to its emotional abilities through “wearing your heart on your sleeve.”
