Robotic Spider Dress Stabs People Who Come Too Close

December 23, 2014


This is Dutch designer Anouk Wipprecht's Spider Dress. It monitors the wearer's surroundings and respiration, and extends its legs if their breathing rate increases or somebody comes too close. Not a bad idea. Also, just wildly waving a steak knife around. It seems to work for this guy I've seen at the bus stop.

Keep going for a short video of the dress in action.

Thanks to Rebecca F, who agrees personal space is important and you should respect it (or risk getting stabbed).
