Architecture & Physical Computing | Reactive Poncho

People have different levels of personal space and often times, these levels are violated. When the levels are violated, people do not address these intrusions due to the lack of comfortability. The reactive poncho allows the human being to address these invasions of personal space without having to talk or act. Through four range finders, the intrusion of personal space is detected and the servos rotate to extend the four arms that stretch the translucent plastic poncho to discourage people from passing personal space.
