suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
Arsenios ZACHARIADIS: A butterfly-based armor. Studying the structure of a butterfly’s wing I create a system composed by three layers. An underground basis looking like a uniform, a crowd of transformed crater depending on the light intensity of the plane, and an upper layer with tiny spikes.
The system transformed to an armor following a connection between the three layers. The upper layer can act as a connection between the homogenius things, while it can act as a cocoon protecting from the enemies.
