A 3D Printed Robotic Spider Dress

Gear  |  Design
By designer  Anouk Wipprecht.
"Aptly called the 'Spider Dress', this piece of wearable tech features animatronic mechanical limbs that respond to external stimuli while defend the personal space of the wearer. The dress provides an extension of the wearers intuition: It uses proximity sensors as well as a respiration sensor to both define and protecting the personal space of the wearer. Approach the wearer to aggressively and the mechanical limbs move up to an attack position. Approach the system under calmer circumstance and the dress just might beckon you to come closer with smooth, suggestive gestures. 3-D printed sensor based animatronic/mechatronic dress enabled by the Intel Edison acts as the interface between the body and the external world using technology and the garment as a medium of interaction."

Anatomical bags and accessories

Array
Gear  |  Design
Kiev-based Konstantin Kofta makes leather bags and accessories that mimic human anatomy, sometimes making it look like there are hands clutching at the wearer, sometimes looking like the wearer's skin has been flayed and used to make the bags.
"kofta — the kiev-based label of designer konstantin kofta — combines seemingly contradictory elements outside the traditional canons of the fashion industry, with garments and wearable accessories that evoke sensuality and surrealism while maintaining practicality. skin, bones, hands and feet are a few of the human-sourced elements which define a series of backpacks, shoes and handbags, each unexpected in its anatomical accuracy and realism. the designer’s ‘hug’, ‘born’ and ‘roots’ collections thread a common theme around these corporeal motifs, linking visuals of praying and perched hands, skeletal segments and toes together in a series of couture items."

An Artist Uses A Magnifying Glass & The Sun To Burn Pictures

Array
Gear  |  Design
Jordan Mang-osan is a patient guy. Jordan Mang-osan uses wood as his canvas and a magnifying glass coupled with the sun as his medium. That’s right, he uses the sun shining through a magnifying glass to burn landscapes onto wood. The idea of burning images into wood or any other material is not a new one. In fact, it's a whole genre of art aptly named pyrography. But Mang-osan's magnifying glass method is pretty unusual. More images after more.
