Last weekend, I visited Singapore’s army market to pick up some things for prototyping. I usually go to dollar stores or markets to buy cheap readymade objects that I can potentially hack into, but this is the first time I’ve visited a market that specializes in military gear. Of all the fields I’ve looked into, the military is the one that uses wearables in potential apocalyptic scenarios I am looking at.
These patches give me ideas.
I bought a pair of goggles, a head mask, and a face mask. I’m trying to see how the design of each can possibly fit into one of my projects.
This design space is fun. A bit scary, but fun.
