Sarah Kerrigan your dress is ready: A robotic spider dress
Sarah Kerrigan the Queen of Blades from the StarCraft franchise would love this thing. The legs have a creepy motion but man is it cool.
From designer Anouk Wipprecht:
"Exploration within the realms of robotic dresses; a spider dress gave birth. A cute little host creature created by fashiontech designer ANOUK WIPPRECHT and hacker & engineer DANIEL SCHATZMAYR - A prototype of a mechanic dress equipped with sensors indicators and controllers, created with the aim to give more power and 'psychological thrills' to the sugar sweet character that performative wearables often have. Sensoric, servo controlled, mechanic, microcontroller based and reacting//attacking upon approach, inspired by the game LIMBO."
I`d lean more toward StarCraft but hey inspiration is inspiration right? love it.
