Having difficulties telling someone you’re attracted to them? If flirting isn’t your thing, this dress may just be your answer. Aptly named Intimacy 2.0, this racy little number has a hidden secret. The dress, which comes in black faux-leather or white fabric, is fitted with e-foils which read the wearer’s heart rate. When the wearer is turned on, the plastic parts of the dress becomes see-through. What?! This means that as well as arousal, emotions such as excitement, fear and anxiety may cause the wearer to expose far more than they intended.
The dress was designed by Dutch designer Daan Roosegaarde of Studio Roosegaarde. He explained: “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.’ If it does become available, would you put this on in public?
