Not many people are wise in the ways of expressing their distaste for unwanted or unsavory interactions with others; Expressive Wearables helps by stepping in for them. Taking on the form of a very fancy hat, one that is worthy of the Kentucky Derby events, Expressive Wearables responds to people's movements in ways that sends warning signals.

For instance, when a person leans in for a kiss, the choker part of the Expressive Wearables flares out to keep his or her distance. In response to shouting, a similar reaction happens, but around the ears instead. Designed by interaction designer Sangli Li, a student at California's Art Center College of Design, Expressive Wearables appears to be made up of paper fans. Although it has no filter, it is full of fine elegance. Stats for Protective Fancy Hats Trending: Older & Mild
