This is the Robotic Spider Dress, a collaboration piece between designer Anouk Wipprecht (of self-coloring dress fame) and programmer Daniel Schatzmayr. It moves its legs around whenever it senses nearby movement. That's creepy. I can't say I'd recommend any of you ladies wearing it on a first date. *making phone call* So I'll meet you at the restaurant around 8? "Sounds great, I'll be the girl with the robotic spider dress on." Okay cool, I'll be the guy who drives by without stopping.
Hit the jump for a video of the thing in action complete with super creepy sound effects.
A very special thanks to myself, for getting out of bed every morning instead of just pulling the covers over my head and crying like I always want to.
