Slogan: When words fail you, Ni Hao, My A** uses your assets to return your voice.
Ni Hao, My Ass is a wearable device for Asian women who experience racist catcalling. The dress empowers the wearer to denounce the aggressors in a provocative but non-confrontational, non-verbal manner by automating the process.
The user dons a specially designed dress and a pair of underwear. When the user experiences a racist catcall, they activate the automated response by pressing a discreetly placed button. The button triggers a motor that raises the hem of the dress and reveals the eye-catching red underwear with their retort, “ni hao, racist.”
