Pallavi commented on Biomimicry for Wearable Security

How can I attach a picture to this? Can I email it to you to upload? I drew out a design like a leaf that had thin fibers and feels soft if you feel it in one direction but if you pull it in the wrong direction the fibers stick out and pierce your fingers with a million tiny thorns that are hurt your fingers. And it hurts!! if you apply pressure on them again. You need to remove it thorn by thorn like shards of glass.

Kenneth - the picture you put up, got me thinking about a wide bracelet that is filled with thin needle like filaments and would look like ordinary fur, but when there is an attack, it could be twisted into opposite directions making the filaments stand up on end like a porcupine. I'm going to try to attach a drawing (really bad art!)
