An aging simulator to help the wearer feel how aging can impact the bosy. The whole design class worked together to make the suit. I was part of the group responsible for the torso, neck and overall coordination of the groups. The suit was based on an academic research about how aging people experience bodily degeneration. I conducted some user tests on my own afterward to find out how well the suit worked. Here is the article about my findings.

The team that made the suit: The 2nd years of industrial design at NTNU 2013
