3D printed ‘Spider Dress’

The 3D printed ‘Spider Dress’ is the latest example of the robotic fashion. This dress is the creativity of engineer and designer Anouk Wipprecht and is connected to an Intel Edison.

‘Spider Dress’ is a master piece of wearable technology that combines 3D printing with animatronic mechanics. A series of skeletal-like limbs "respond to external stimuli" as per configuration proximity and respiration sensors, meant to "defend the personal space of the wearer." It transforms itself as per the mood, level of aggression, heart beat and stress level.

It is still in the testing phase, and will make its debut next week Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
