The Company Keeper outfit

The Company Keeper acts as a virtual friend to amuse, comfort, and support its wearer with audio playback and to neutralize the occupant’s nervous disposition.


The wearer’s mood is assessed by his/her body language (calculated with embedded touch sensors and an accelerometer in a hanging beaded tassel) and the level of sound in the environment. When moods such as wrath, awkwardness, and claustrophobia are detected, an antidotal soundscape is played through headphones in the hood.
