Robotic Spider Dress Powered By Intel Smart Wearable Technology

Smart Spider Dress, powered by Intel Edison, blends fashion with robotics and wearable technology to express the wearer’s emotions and protect their personal space.

Call it a smart cocktail dress with a kick, an outfit with built in self defense.

Experimental designer Anouk Wipprecht’s latest Spider Dress unabashedly blends beauty with a bite, or better said, a poke.

This creepy and captivating couture is her latest exploration into what can happen when the worlds of robotics, wearable technology and fashion collide. It made it’s public debut at the 2015 International Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, NV today.


The Dutch designer is known for creations such as the brainwave-monitoring Synapse dress, Smoke Dress, Intimacy 2.0, 3D-printed outfits for Cirque du Soleil and the dress Fergie wore during the Black Eyed Peas live performance at Super Bowl 2011.
