This fashion project by Studio Roosegaarde uses leather and smart e-foils to create dresses that respond to social interactions and become more or less transparent. ‘Intimacy 2.0′ was designed to explore the relationship between intimacy and technology. When a person gets close to others, hugs or dances with them, the e-foils in the dress are activated and the level of transparency alters, “creating a sensual play of disclosure.” Take a look at the pictures and video below to see the design and its changing looks:
