Do Not Want: Intimacy 2.0 Dress

Dating is hard enough without having your dress become see-through when you get turned on. The Intimacy 2.0 dress, designed by Daan Roosegaarde, is the first garment that responds to arousal. When the leather and opaque “e-foils” detect the wearer’s increased heart rate, they become transparent.

“Intimacy 2.0 is a fashion project exploring the relation between intimacy and technology … Technology is used here not merely functional but also as a tool to create intimacy as well as privacy on a direct, personal level which in our contemporary tech society is becoming increasingly important,” said Roosegaarde.

All I can imagine are potential moments of unwanted exposure in the Intimacy 2.0. Like if someone scares you and suddenly your nipples are showing. Or you’re running to catch the subway and find your ass crack exposed. No thanks. I think I’d prefer and invisibility cape. Isn’t that supposed to be happening soon? [Huffington Post]
