Yes, you did read that correctly! Daan Roosegaarde, founder of Studio Roosegaarde has created an “Intimacy Dress.” The Netherland’s based designer has created a range of high tech dresses that become transparent based on your emotions.
According to the Studio Roosegaarde website, the dresses are able to turn clear since they are made of “opaque smart e-foils that become increasingly transparent based on close and personal encounters with people.” The e-foil responds in a more gradual sense, like a dimmer than a light switch, and is based on your heart rate and the body’s manifestation of social interactions. Although we understand in theory how the dress works, is this something we would really want to wear?
These dresses are able to reveal not only if your heart is racing, but also become totally see through and become more transparent the faster your heart beats. With that said, if you were to become anxious while wearing this dress, be prepared for what will happen next! What are your thoughts: would you buy this transparent dress, or better yet, would you wear it if you got it as a gift?
