A Robotic Spider Dress That Attacks People When They Get Too Near Too Fast [Video]

This is super creepy.

Aptly called the ‘Spider Dress’, this piece of wearable tech features animatronic mechanical limbs that respond to external stimuli while defending the personal space of the wearer. The dress provides an extension of the wearers intuition: It uses proximity sensors as well as a respiration sensor to both define and protect the personal space of the wearer. Approach the wearer too aggressively and the mechanical limbs move up to an attack position. Approach the system under calmer circumstance and the dress just might beckon you to come closer with smooth, suggestive gestures.

The design will be showcased during CES alongside the Synapse dress for Intel, January 6-9th in Las Vegas

  1. Video quality is terrible. It keeps going blurry. Use of extreme closeups to prevent one to actually see what it is doing. It is labeled a dress but we only see the top in bits and pieces, entire shots of the torso are brief and then go blurry. Half the video is just black screen.

  2. They’re specifically making it hard to see so you’ll be intrigued enough to come see it at CES , January 6-9th in Las Vegas.
    Oh – you’re not a CES attendee? Then you’re not the target of this video, and just a victim of the fact that there’s no such thing as a targeted release on the internets any more. There will be plenty of full length shots released to the world the 2nd week of January.
