Those who commute to work during peak hours would normally have to jostle elbow to elbow with the rest of the general populace, and this can be quite a claustrophobic experience for those who are not used to it. Apart from that, being jammed up line sardines in a can is also a situation that is ripe for a pickpocket to “work” in. Is there a way to make sure that you will be able to maintain your personal space without offending the others with a far? Apparently, the Personal Space Dress is a conceptual idea that some ladies might want to explore.

This is one piece of wearable technology, so to speak, that comes with a sense of humor. In fact, it does look as though you are wearing an umbrella around your waist, where there should leave ample room around you so that no one gets close. The Personal Space Dress is the brainchild of a certain Kathleen McDermott, where it will expand whenever someone comes close to invading your personal space. No idea on the kind of algorithm that makes this work, but it will definitely shock those around you if they have not quite seen this animatronic dress in action before.
