    I'm ashamed to be associated with the designer for having graduated from the same uni.

    Had thought it was a hoax when I first saw the design =.=

    What happened to good old common sense of just giving way ? Sigh , wearing this seems to be as low as those using monster prams carrying their overgrown kids in the trains.


    I hope the wearer doesn't fall down, it will be really an effort to unpluck the wearer from the ground

    The vest need to include some puffer fish toxin containers.

    Nothing to be ashamed about if you look at it in context... It was designed during a chindogu workshop.

    Ms Cheng Siew Han said she designed the 'Spike Away' vest during a workshop she attended while she was an undergraduate.

    The workshop, helmed by German furniture designer Werner Aisslinger, asked attendees to create a "Chindogu" solution to a particular problem. The term "Chindogu" is of Japanese origin - which literally means, 'weird tools'.

    Thanks for sharing that. At least with a proper context now , I can accept the logic behind this vest

    the fact that your fellow alumni participated in said workshop should make you ashamed

    The trouble is not whether we are creative or not.

    The trouble is whether are are creative enough to see creativity.

    It is only a spoof.
    Not meant to be a serious design. Perhaps an attention getting trick.
    But only in a negative sense. If this is the best that our NUS design graduates can do, it spells doom for SG.

    Why? It's reasonably soft material:
    Ms Cheng describes the vest as made of "strips of spiky, flexible plastic material found in the gardening section of a handy store". They are then held together with cable ties. "Fittingly, it was normally used to keep birds and cats away from plants," said Ms Cheng.
    Did you read or just had a quick look at the pic and the staged faces around her?

    It should be made of metal spikes to be effective in MRT.
