Are you Arachnophobic? If yes then here is something you might not like. Netherlands-based fashion designer Anouk Wipprecht has created a Robotic Spider Dress that is surely inspired by the eight legged crawling creatures.
Designed in collaboration with Austrian software developer Daniel Schatzmayr, Anouk’s Robotic Spider Dress deals with themes of “personal space” and raises questions concerning control and privacy.
The robotic limbs rest on the wearer’s shoulders mysteriously dancing around the body. The dress stirs up the curiosity of the passersby and if someone approaches very close it protects the wearer too.
The Robotic Spider Dress was presented at the Café Neu Romanc in Prague last November during the EU Robotics week. Anouk Wipprecht past work includes smoke screen dress and collection of Intimacy dresses.
