A high tech suit for the homeless
Sheltersuit - a water repellent and windproof suit with removable sleeping bag for refugees and the homeless – will receive an update. With the help of electronics, DesignLab University of Twente, the Saxion lectorate Smart Functional Materials and the Sheltersuit Foundation are going to transform the suit into an 'Urban Safety Kit'. The partners are doing so in the context of WEARSustain, an EU Horizon 2020 project that allocated €50,000 to the partners for research and development.
Project member Edo de Wolf wrote a blog about the Urban Safety Kit.
