First prototype : act as an EHS sufferer for 1 daySpeculative Design
As a normal individual, it is obvious that I cannot feel the misery of EHS patients. I decided to spend a day as an EHS patient to develop my empathy, and the experience will be my first prototype.
First of all, I designed a garment which is made of tin foil to effectively shield electromagnetic signals.
I took a mobile phone with an app that can roughly detect the signal intensity.
Walking on the street in this garment is very eye-catching.
As far as I have discovered, there is no chance that the signal could be zero when walking in the city. I realized that the coverage of communication signals must be seamless. We can imagine that it is hard for EHS patients to live normally in their daily lives.
