Soda Machine Disguises To Ward Off Crime


That is until I start kicking the crap out of it for not giving me my soda. Also where do you put the change?

Japanese women could be “safer” at night by wearing vending-machine disguises

A Japanese designer has proposed that women alone could walk in greater safety (though, in reality, Japanese crime levels are in decline, despite national anxiety to the contrary) by disguising themselves as vending machines.


Deftly, Ms. Tsukioka, a 29-year-old experimental fashion designer, lifted a flap on her skirt to reveal a large sheet of cloth printed in bright red with a soft drink logo partly visible. By holding the sheet open and stepping to the side of the road, she showed how a woman walking alone could elude pursuers — by disguising herself as a vending machine.

The wearer hides behind the sheet, printed with an actual-size photo of a vending machine. Ms. Tsukioka’s clothing is still in development, but she already has several versions, including one that unfolds from a kimono and a deluxe model with four sides for more complete camouflaging.

    WTF? How about moving along and not standing still? Or at least transforming ala Optimus Prime into a kick ass truck?

    I love this story. It could only happen in Japan. Could you image this fooling MS13?

    Instead of that big costume, maybe they could just carry a lampshade, and put it on their head.

    An even more effective method to ward would be attackers can be found here…

    That is really sick. That would work, except for in Alabama. They consider that the appetizer.

  6. TRM says:

    sorry if I got out of line…

    Out of line? Out of LINE? On Ed Gruberman there is no line… Snap Crack Wooosh… Ti Kwan Leap!
