Agent Unicorn by Anouk Wipprecht
Anouk Wipprecht is a High-Tech Fashion Designer from the Netherlands. She combines fashion and technology with engineering, science and interaction/user experience design. Her work is quite unusual and unique: she creates high-tech couture that moves, breathes and reacts to the environment around the human body.
She created Agent Unicorn, a unicorn-horn-shaped headpiece for autistic children which uses the Unicorn Brain Interface to measure brain activity. Inside the unicorn horn there is a little camera which captures the children’s environment. The headpiece should help to find out what might trigger them and give a better understanding of their individual distractions. It is also a very playful device and has been realized with Unicorn Simulink Interface. Anouk Wipprecht aims to give these children a little bit more of a playful aspect in the medical environment.
