Parasites

All these sensors only want one thing of me: i have to charge them. They could be called parasites. I made a jacket for these parasites. The jackets consists of geometrical shapes and the sensors are in patches which can hide on these shapes, being camouflaged.
And guess what: one of the patches doesn't have to be charged, it charges itself and starts when enough electricity is generated by it's solar cell. Out of the sun, it continues for 15 minutes and then it stops again, being patient till the sun shines on its cell. This is not a parasite, it is a symbiont. Since this patch is warning me by vibrating when i walk in too much sun, our relationship could be called mutualism.
