Many fashion-forward ladies might want to dress to impress with a Robotic Spider Dress. High-tech advances have most surely progressed beyond anyone’s expectations in the last ten years. Those passionate about robotics should get ready to discover a rather unique blend between fashion and technology. Anouk Wipprecht , a Dutch fashion designer has recently flaunted a redesigned adaptation of the Robotic Spider Dress, which was initially revealed in January 2013.
In this particular case, fashion has been out-ranked by technology, as the dress is to a greater extent a matter of security rather than a fashion item. With robotic appendages attached to the shoulders that are linked with the wearer’s breath, the dress is intended to be a self-defense mechanism.
More exactly, when the user starts breathing in an accelerated and aggressive manner, the dress takes an assault position. If the person wearing it has a calm, normal breathing rhythm than the dress relaxes as well an even displays some ‘sexy’ movements inviting those around closer.
Black shells cover the hip zone equipped with LEDs that shine if the user is in the close vicinity of other people. As the limbs, the shells will shine according to the degree of calmness the user displays when surrounded by others. The tech-fashion item will be presented in detail, next month in Las Vegas at CES 2015. At the event most of the technicalities behind the piece of clothing will be disclosed.
The dress has been created utilizing 3d printing, which has significantly provided the outline. It works based on an Intel Edison chip, stored inside, and linked with nearness and breath sensors. However, the sensors cannot be perceived by any admirer, which is the way it ought to be for a gadget/dress of this gauge.
According to Wipprecht, the intel chip allowed the designer to incorporate a tiny small technology capable of rapidly processing muddled sets of signs. Also the chip has an on-board storage and is able to interconnect remotely to considerable input data in the split of a second, in a progressive and savvy manner.
Wipprecht has been very dynamic in this area and stated that the redesigned model with Edison chip is a lot better than the initial Synapses concept released in 2013. Though one cannot talk about the tech-dress as a new standard in fashion or robotics, it does give one an interesting perspective on the future.
The Robotic Spider Dress is an astounding sample of how 3d printing and coordinated innovations have progressed quickly over the recent years.
