enhanced ability _ bioluminescence / speechless expression

Speaking words does not always deliver what you think or your true emotions. At the same time, you want people to catch your mind even when you are not saying it verbally especially if you are not feeling safe.
Animals don’t speak but they have natural self defense mechanisms which trigger when threatened. For example the jellyfish glows itself when they are threatened or attacked by predators. Many other animals have similar mechanism to ward off unwanted guests . Humans due to their sedentary life styles have lost or do not pose this sort of defense mechanism.
We want to make blatant clothes that help people ward off danger. almost like a billboard for what someone is feeling whether danger or nervousness.
What does other dress do ? taking from nature especially luminescent creatures. the skirt in our prototype is triggered by a push button, when you are nervous or agitated you tape the push button and the skirt blinks the leds embedded in the skirt, alternatively if you hold down on the button for more than 10secs the leds go crazy like a police car light.
sensor_push button switch
Logic / Physical Reaction_
First, put the sensor_push button switch on your finger and using switch statement, we can express different color variations. The switch statement allows you to choose values of a variable.
Switch case 0 == switch statement 0n < 1 sec
RGB LED value – (255 , 255 , 255) just white light comes out
Switch case 1 == switch statement 0n > 1 sec && switch statement 0n < 3 sec
RGB LED value – (255 , 255 , 255) && Blink blinking white lights
Switch case 2 == switch statement 0n > 3 sec
RGB LED value – (255 ,0 , 0) && (0 , 0 , 255) red & blue lights switch over like a siren
