Wi-Fi Pain Vest Doles Out Punishment for Nearing Hotspots

Illustration for article titled Wi-Fi Pain Vest Doles Out Punishment for Nearing Hotspots

The "Constraint City" vest is a weird project by Austrian artist Gordan Savicic that's a sadistic type of Wi-Fi detector. It's a vest, and as you get closer to Wi-Fi hotspots, it gets tighter and tighter, causing discomfort and pain. The idea, according to Savicic, is to create "schizo-geographic pain map" of the wireless signals around us. OK. Perhaps it'd be better used to wean people off their internet addictions, although I suppose you could just plug in and avoid the squeeze. Or, you know, just not put on the stupid vest in the first place. [Project Page via Make]
