My mask takes the form of a wearable array of devices that notifies you of the presence of other people either in front or behind your person, and forces you to be constantly aware of your environment
I hooked up two webcams and a set of earphones to my laptop; which the user carries around in my backpack. The user must wear a around their forehead to support the webcams, with one placed above their face and the other on the back of their head, as well as a set of headphones, all of which are attached to a laptop that is secured in back of the user.
The Webcams are both Logitech webcams, one from STUDIO, one is mine. The band is a re-purposed HRT sleep mask acquired at a job-fair like event. The laptop is mine. The backpack is mine.
Proof of function at very low framerate:
“there is someone behind you” ” there is someone in front of you”
