Are you the kind of person who finds it’s hard to express yourself? Well the new Intimacy 2.0 may help in making your feelings more transparent. This fashion/technological breakthrough measures the heart-rate of the wears and adjusts its transparency accordingly.
In a bar-like situation, a conversation with a charming partner that causes the wear’s heart to race may cause the dress to show more skin whereas one with someone who is dull and boring may keep everything behind curtains.
Its designer, Daan Roosegaarde constructed it out of leather and smart e-foils that are opaque. This dress is another unconventional addition to fashion, alongside dresses made from chocolate and paper.
The Intimacy 2.0 has already won a string of awards and created explosive media buzz. This dress does explore the merger between fashion and technology like the new Google glasses exploit, but on the less obvious side, it also shows how fashion is essentially a social tool, and how styles adjust themselves to the social climate.
While it covers up our bodies, clothing is meant to give others a glimpse into what lies underneath, which in turn facilitates social interaction. In our age of efficiency and sexual/romantic freedom, this dress may lead to more straightforward and quicker beginnings to relationships.
