It’s Valentine’s Day and your one true love has planned a romantic evening. A dozen roses, dinner at a five star restaurant and all the heart-shaped chocolate you can eat. But what do you wear? Well if Dutch designer Daan Roosegaarde had a say, you’d be wearing a dress that leaves little to the imagination.
Roosegaarde is the creator of Intimacy 2.0, a dress that turns see-through when the wearer becomes aroused.
The dress is made of leather and smart opaque e-foils that become clear when the wearer’s heartbeat speeds up.
“Technology is used here [as] not merely functional but also as a tool to create intimacy as well as privacy on a direct, personal level which in our contemporary tech society is becoming increasingly important,” Roosegaarde told the Daily Mail.
I can see how this dress would create intimacy, but privacy? Unless you’re in your own home with just your partner, there is nothing private about this frock. I don’t know about you, but I’m easily stressed out. Just crossing a busy street would make my heart race and I would flash the entire road – which would probably make my heart race even faster, creating a terribly vicious see-through cycle.
Besides, I’m pretty sure my Valentine’s Day date would prefer if I left something for the bedroom.
