Estrogen to the rescue!
Alexia Cohen is working on a speculative object for 3DPD2, graduate class in SVA's Products of Design department. It is based on a Utopian future in 2075 where the archetype of the outdoorsy woman has risen to the top for their resilience. Climate change has made Super Storms all too common in this speculative future and we have become a nomadic society so we can flee storms more easily. This device is called ETHER and it is a device women wear to be constantly monitoring atmospheric conditions to better predict super storms. The reason only women carry these, is that the devices are powered by estrogen, hence the ovarian shape of the model.
