There are a ton of horror stories (or perhaps urban legends is a better way of putting it) that involve tech-savvy individuals hacking into people's laptops while they're sitting in a coffee shop or swiping banking information as consumers tap their cards on Interac consoles; Data Vaporizer addresses these fears as well as the growth of the wearable technology industry. Data Vaporizer may look like a simple backpack, but it is simply designed to be deceptive.

Conceived by MFA candidate Ji Won Jun for a course at the Art Center College of Design, Data Vaporizer is triggered either by an inhaler or its proximity sensor. When a person is too close or suspicious, it lets out a shroud of dry ice to show the potential perpetrator the wearer is aware.
