RUAH



is an interactive corset controlled by Arduino, helping the user to breath with your diaphragm. 

               
RUAH is helping the user to become conscious of his body’s movement. Using the diaphragmatic breath, an e-textile stretch sensor catches the movement of the user belly sending a feedback to a muscle wire -flexinol spring- for inflating and deforming the structure of the corset.
The dress is an immediate interface environment and space that surrounds us, capable of transmitting and receiving constantly emotional experiences.
A slow and controlled breath helps to balance the body and the mind, increasing sensory abilities and physical endurance, a simple and spontaneous practice which is acquired only after a long workout. The corset is responding to the user emotions acting as a second interactive skin.
Body as an object and dress as a second skin.
