We want to have an underwater theme that focuses on creatures that are considered “scary” and “ugly” at the bottom of the sea but portraying them to be more angelic and beautiful. The spine will be the main piece that connects the other actuations. There will be a slithering-like motion on the back that will then trigger the opening of the shoulder/back. Our wearable focuses on making it beautiful but still slightly uncomfortable and grotesque than usual.


We tried making one side of the spine as it is the most difficult feature of our wearable. By using rubber bands and laser cutting, we tested the mechanism. Unfortunately, due to the laser cutting, we were unsuccessful with motion we wanted and hope to talk with Garth to better understand the mechanism.
