By Izza Sofia, 21 Mar 2017
Growing up in strict social hierarchy can lead to real frustration.
The bottling of thoughts, biting one’s tongue regularly and having to uphold unquestionable respect is what inspired young designer Yi-Fei Chen to create the ‘Tear Gun’.

The ‘Tear Gun’ works by catching tears under the wearer’s eye with a silicon pocket. They are then funnelled into a steampunk-like brass system. A small bottle filled with dry ice fixed to the back of the pistol freezes the teardrops into solid bullets, ready to be fired into the face of authority.
