Panasonic – WEAR SPACE

WEAR SPACE is a wearable device designed to aid concentration by limiting your senses of sight and hearing, via noise-canceling technology and a partition that controls your field of view.
As open offices and digital nomads are on the rise, workers are finding it ever more important to have personal space where they can focus. WEAR SPACE instantly creates this kind of personal space – it’s as simple as putting on an article of clothing. The device can be adjusted based on the level of concentration you desire, so it adapts to the various situations you’ll find yourself in. And we’re bringing the device to life through partnership with Kunihiko Morinaga, creator of the fashion brand Anrealage, who shares our vision for this concept. And though joint development with external partners, we’re expanding on applications for WEAR SPACE.
