The Synapse Dress, powered by Intel Edison,was designed by fashion designer Anouk Wipprecht of the Netherlands.

Not only does the Smart Spider Dress – also running on Intel’s Edison board – sense the wearer’s mood, its robotic spider legs react to biometric signals from stress levels and how much personal space is being ‘attacked’. Proximity sensors measure up to 23 feet around the body and has nine degrees of movement.

In a bonkers meeting of animal kingdom rules and high fashion, the ‘collar’ of the dress can go into territorial ‘attack’ mode is the wearer feels threatened or dance in an inviting manner if approached in a careful manner.

For extra bonus points, the robotic dress is of course 3D printed from pearly white nylon.
