Keep these threads in mind the next time you need a witness: the Aposematic Jacket is a camera-studded, business-appropriate, "wearable computer for self-defense." Created by Seoul-based art collective Shinseungback Kimyonghun, the jacket is laced with lenses that start recording when the wearer pushes a button, as well as its own Raspberry Pi computer. Not only do the external lenses send a prominent warning to criminals like a porcupine showing off its spines, the jacket films incidents in 360-degrees and posts the footage online instantly.
While little is known about their Aposematic Jacket, Shinseungback Kimyonghun has previously used facial recognition software to generate portraits of the average face in a popular movies, and to spot faces in the clouds.
