The I-Shirt project deals with uncomfortable situations in a humorous way. We chose to create a t-shirt that had buttons hidden in it. When a user feels uncomfortable he or she can press a secret button in his or her partner’s shirt. We mapped some basic movements of a person in uncomfortable situations and situated the buttons accordingly.
The shirt platform is designed to be hidden so that the person you are interacting with will not notice what is about to happen; rather, he or she just suddenly hears a sound.
