Ape Mate

Space Station

Out-of-this-world fashion with function: clothing or accessories for earth or space wear!

Every space traveler – even the robotic ones – should feel? their very best during the journey, infused with the very best data and technology available. Earthlings can follow suit. Design a space data-tech-fashion wearable in the form of clothing or accessories that will collect or distribute data and technology in the following categories:

Design for Interconnectivity (staying more connected to team, community, and tools)

  • enhance the work/life experience of humans and/or capabilities of robots  

Design for Health (biometrics, physical and emotional health, and/or environmental alerts)

  • maintain or improve the health and well-being of the human
  • provide early warning for unhealthy environmental factors (air quality, radiation, outgassing, temperature)

Design for Entertainment (sights, sounds, music, activity)

  • enhance the human experience whether during work or play

When you live, play and work in space, you rely heavily on your equipment to keep you alive and maintain your health and well-being. You need the best data and technology available, and you need a way to read all that important information at a glance.

At Space Apes, we're tackling the challenge of identifying pockets of dangerous CO2 build-ups inside a spacecraft and notifying all nearby astronauts. To this end, we've developed a wearable solution; the ApeMate. With the ApeMate, you can go about your daily life without having to worry about your health. The ApeMate sensors travel around autonomously, relaying information about CO2 levels via Bluetooth to the astronaut's wristband, notifying the wearer in advance whether they are about to enter an oxygen-deprived space.

But why stop at CO2? At Space Apes we are constantly striving for technological improvement in our wearable, with further development of our ApeMate, we hope to be able to detect radiation levels before sending an astronaut into uncharted territories, protect workers at nuclear and other industrial facilities, coordinate search and rescue team members around hazardous areas - and so much more.
