You don't get to choose whether this dress is revealing or not -- your carnal instincts do.
The 'Intimacy 2.0' dress, designed by Daan Roosegaarde, is getting a rise out of the fashion world because its opaque fabric becomes transparent when you get aroused. Finally, all the cards will be on the table. You'll have your date saying, "Is your dress disappearing, or are you just happy to see me?"
The already barely-there garment features ribbons of leather and opaque "e-foils," which can detect the model's heartbeat, the Daily Mail reports.
"Intimacy 2.0 is a fashion project exploring the relation between intimacy and technology," Roosegaarde said. "Technology is used here 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."
In other words, you're going to be showing a lot more than sideboob when you dance, walk briskly, witness a fender-bender, eat a grape, or engage in any other mildly heart-thumping activity.
Another caveat: Though Roosegaarde has said he's "in talks" to produce a ready-to-wear line of Intimacy clothing, the current dress is only a prototype and a project.
Would you wear this thing?
