Exploring wearable tech with reality mediators

“Mediated Reality,” a futuristic cyberpunk-link project by London-based designer ling QL, was created to analyze the impact of wearable technology.

According to DesignBoom, “Mediated Reality” incorporates 3D printing and body sensing components. Combined, the gear helps question the artificial modification of human perception when it is deliberately enhanced or altered.

Indeed, as you can see in the video above and diagram below, the slick design consists of a series of wearable objects (including an Atmel-based Arduino) that are worn for an extended period of time.

Recorded information can be precisely analyzed, helping the wearer better understand his or her interaction with the surrounding environment, including people. Simply put, the above-mentioned project explores the limits of human acceptance towards this new form of (wearable) skin extension.
