'Intimacy 2.0' features Studio Roosegaardeʼs new, high-tech wearable dresses composed of leather and smart e-foils which are daringly perfect to wear on the red carpet. The e-foils become transparent and opaque in response to the heartbeat of the model wearing the e-dress.

Bad at flirting? Here’s a dress that will do the talking for you.
Designers from Studio Roosegaarde, an interactive design firm in the Netherlands, has created dresses that react to the wearer’s body, as well as to those around her. One dress changes colors to the beat of the wearer’s heart, becoming more transparent based on close encounters.heartbeatdress.JPG?uuid=qTnFyAu0EeGZ7C6lZcS_dg

The “Intimacy 2.0” dress is made from e-foils, which become clear when they’re zapped with electricity. The designers say that “Social interactions determine the garments’ level of transparency, creating a sensual play of disclosure.” So, if a gentleman at the bar gets a woman’s heart racing, the dress will show more skin. A dull conversation from an unwanted suitor will keep the dress opaque.
The dress features a neckline that plunges to the midriff, with sculptural coils of the e-foil protruding from the shoulders. Though it looks a little bit like a “Project Runway” castoff, the company is inviting haute couture fashion designers to collaborate.
Studio Roosegaarde, which has also invented a dance floor that can generate electricity, describes the dress as “perfect for the red carpet,” but that would be true only if the wearer were planning to have a wardrobe malfunction. When the dress goes transparent, it’s quite see-through — so, flirting in the Intimacy dress is a way to wear your heart on your sleeve, and not much else.

This isn't really new.

They do have other projects as well. What I love about this intimacy concept is that it gives me a look into the future where people would be wearing these dresses and where it would be fun to flirt, although the rate of reported rapes will increase but it's a small price to pay for a futuristic look.

I think this dress works on pulse detection, the more your heart bumps faster, the transparent the dress becomes. But that's just my guess.

    Lol I saw this on Reddit.
    Would make my life a LOAD easier. I don't do hints very well. Also the comment about having the reverse technology (slow heartbeat = transparency) should be put on shorts/clothes of fat people to keep them running.
