Anouk Wipprecht, the techno-couture designer of Dutch origin known for creating convention defying ensembles, has unveiled an updated version of her famous Robotic Spider Dress, featuring sensor-installed spider like legs and shoulder epaulettes which move if a stranger strays too close to the wearer’s body.

First showcased at VIVE LE ROBOTS / Cafe Neue Romance in Prague, the capital and largest city of the Czech Republic, during the EU Robotics week in November, 2012, the outfit’s revised version is embedded with Intel brand’s ultra small computing chip Edison.

Replete with a 3-D printed bodice similar to a skeleton, the dress’s mechanized legs are incorporated with proximity and respiration sensors that extend when detect any change in the wearer’s breathing as well as the nearing presence of another person.

The outfit, which will be showcased at the forthcoming edition of the technology-centric show CES 2015 (scheduled to kick off from January 6, 2015), also features LED lights-embedded black shells that can sense and react at the looming approach of the other person by flashing steadily.

Wipprecht, whose fashion-tech garments have been favoured by the likes of Fergie from the famous American hip hop group The Black Eyed Peas, has earlier designed an Intimacy dress, which can turn from opaque to transparent in response to the wearer's level of arousal, measured by the heart rate.
