A professional photographer whom I know told me he'd never own any car that wasn't a van. When shooting guerilla-style on the streets of NYC, he explained, it's crucial to have a mobile changing room for the models to switch outfits in.
The desire to not be seen naked in public is not the sole domain of fashion models. For women who exercise outdoors, absent the facilities of a gym, they run into the issue of where to change out of their sweaty workout clothes. (We guys are less picky about who sees us in our boxer shorts in a parking lot.)
Thus endurance athletes and business partners Dennis Caco and April Estrada invented the Undress, a clever assemblage of fabric that allows females to change outfits in broad daylight, all without exposing themselves:
Some of you might underestimate demand for something like the Undress. But take note that Caco and Estrada were looking for a measly $22,000 to get it of the ground, and by the time the project was successfully Kickstarted yesterday, they found $615,663 in the pledge coffer.
For those who missed the Kickstarter, the Undress can still be pre-ordered on its own website.
