Robotic Spider Dress

The dress by fashiontech designer Anouk Wipprecht and engineer Daniel Schatzmar is creepy enough even without the ultra artful video presentation. From the YouTube description:
A prototype of a mechanic dress equipped with sensors indicators and controllers, created with the aim to give more power and 'psychological thrills' to the sugar sweet character that performative wearables often have. Sensoric, servo controlled, mechanic, microcontroller based and reacting//attacking upon approach, inspired by the game LIMBO.
It was unveiled during the EU Robotics Week in Prague. (via Geeks Are Sexy)
