Pinecap Hat with Spikes #WearableWednesday

Jan De Coster writes in:

In this project I am exploring the possibilities of dynamic and interactive body language enhancements. People have, for ages, tried to enhance the messages they send to people around them, with the help of, for example, tattoos or jewelry. But your mood changes constantly, even several times per minute. So I believe these enhancements should be able to change too, constantly. The first piece, the PINECAP, displays porcupine spikes through the top of a cap. These spikes rise or drop depending on the mood of the wearer. This mood is measured by head-gestures, skin-conductivity, body temperature or even a brain-activity interface.
