THE MEDITATION BODYSUIT

The last wearable is an awareness of spiritual reality and is commonly referenced in psychedelics or inducing meditative states. This meditation wearable can not only sense when you enter into a meditation trance, but also acts as a way for the user to reflect on all the experiential data they have amassed when using the Internet of Consciousness system.

PROTOTYPING

In order to create a workable prototype of the meditation suit, I began to experiment and hack EEG sensors. With the EEG readings, I could trigger various sequences of the bodysuit. As an expressive version of entering the meditation and activating the “body interface”, I created a soft circuit of circular LED rings and sewed them into a custom bodysuit made with stretchable jersey fabric. After much hacking and sewing, I was able to get the EEG to read when a user hit an average meditation and attention levels which then activated the 6 LED rings to animate and glow along the body, representative of each corresponding chakra placement from the root of the spine to the top of the head.
