Robotics collides with high fashion to produce this one-of-a-kind and truly creepy robotic spider dress. It might look like a typical little black dress most women have in their closets, but the complicated robotic machinery attached to it sets it miles apart from the rest.
The dress was created by Dutchdesigner Anouk Wipprecht, who worked with Austrian software developer Daniel Schatzmayr for the robotic parts. It isn’t called the ‘robotic spider dress’ for nothing, because the legs of the mechanical arachnid move when movement is detected nearby. It sounds like a truly creepy piece of garment–but as you shall soon see in the video after the break, it’s even creepier to look at.
