Trypo-Sense: Detecting Punctures in Space Equipment received a Global Nomination.
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)
Design for Health (biometrics, physical and emotional health, and/or environmental alerts)
Design for Entertainment (sights, sounds, music, activity)
Trypo comes from the word trypophobia, fear of holes. The function of the sensor is to detect punctures.
We try to emulate the human body's ability to detect injuries.
For example, if a person gets poked with a pin, he/she will react with an OUCH.
Unfortunately this is not the case with inanimate objects such spacesuits or the ISS.
We created a sensor, which could be hooked up to a controller and a network, to detect where punctures have occurred.
This saves time for the astronaut, who otherwise would manually look for the puncture causing the air leak.
