PROPOSAL

My artifact is electromagnet clothing, including a sweater with electromagnet buttons and a pair of jeans that using electromagnets to attach things on it. Base on my Sci-Fi universe - how life would be on a spaceship far from earth, I try to make a suitable kind of clothing for people when they are in Zero-G or microgravity situation. With one hand or even without hand, they can release and close their buttons on the clothes.

MATERIAL AND TOOL

  1. electromagets 4.5V *4

  2. batteries

  3. needle

  4. tapes

  5. Fabric

  6. scissors

  7. blade

  8. magnet buttons

  1. caulking gun

  1. clothes - hats, sweater, jeans

FAILED WORK (PROCESSING)

  1. Attaching electromagnets on fabric then sew them to the clothes do not work well because electromagnets are too heavy.

  2. Attaching electromagnets on buttons already on clothes do not work well because electromagnets are too heavy.

  3. SUCCEED IN: Attaching electromagnets in the stitches of sweather. However, the steel-made buttons are not strong enough.
