Your gait, the way you walk, is a unique trait that can be used to identify you on video footage. This suit is equipped with several sensors that capture aspects of your movement and the Daisy Seed generates sounds with this data. This will help you disguise your walk by training to generate specific soundscapes, so you can swing, rush, limp or crawl past those cameras unrecognized.

How does it work?

The suit has several sensors sown into key positions that capture the movement. In the creases of the elbows and knees are Velostad pads that change their resistance when they are bent to register how extensive the movement is and record the rhythm of the walking cycle. At the back of the suit below the collar is a gyroscope that measures the speed of movement and orientation of the upper body. The powerbank and microcontroller are placed on the inside of the jacket.

Daisy seed microcontroller
A powerful microcontroller for synthesis programmed through C++, Arduino, Pure data and Max MSP
Velostat is a conductive material. It's pressure-sensitive and can be used as a pressure or bend sensor. Squeezing it will reduce the resistance.
A gyroscope/accelerometer is a device used for measuring or maintaining orientation and angular velocity
