Bran Ferren is the inventor of a suit that makes you feel old. The suit can change the way you feel in your body. For instance, it can make your vision blur so you experience how the elderly see at their age. The suit itself weighs 40 pounds, which makes it hard or even impossible to walk with it on. Ferren wanted to open up a dialogue on issues and struggles that the elderly community experiences. The suit is on exhibit at the Liberty Science Center in Jersey City.
