Anouk Wipprecht's "Spiderdress"
on 07 January 2015
Unveiled at this year’s CES in downtown Las Vegas, the “Spiderdress” by Dutch designer and engineer Anouk Wipprecht takes a new approach at wearable technology. Made through 3D printing and composed of plastic, the spider-like exoskeleton is meant to be a self-defense aid for women with protective arms that sit upon the wearer's shoulders. Sensors are able to track and analyze the wearer’s body language and respiration and will jab at any nearby presence that may be deemed unwanted.
