There are so many times I’ve wished the pain and suffering I get every month on one of my male pals. Now, due to the genius or perhaps insanity (I really mean that statement, take a look at this project) of Royal College of Art student Hiromi Ozaki, I no longer have to wish.
Ozaki has developed a wearable metal suit, dubbed the Menstruation Machine, that allows a boy to experience the “pain and bleeding” of an average 5 day menstruation.
The machine is outfitted with a reservoir system that releases blood and lower-abdomen-stimulating electrodes (Yes! The cramps! The cramps! Give them the cramps!) that gives the wearer the experience of menstrual cramps.
Check out the machine in this catchy little music video for it.
In the video, a boy named Takashi has built the machine in an attempt to dress up as a female “biologically as well as aesthetically.”
