Exploration in interactive body-sensing garments - 3D printed Intel-Edison powered Synapse dress logs and communicates mood and level of (dis)stress. Created by Dutch Fashion Tech designer Anouk Wipprecht and Intel's New Devices Group as a research into 'sensing garments'; as the dress logs your mood, and senses you far beyond one set of bio-signals only, the dress becomes a little ecosystem which monitors your behaviour, while co-evolving with the space around your body. The dress acts on the wearers behalf due to embedded sensors and actuators and logging hardware.
The dress is digital created (Maya, Zbrush) and 3D printed at Materialise (3D printing service) in the flexible TPU 92A-1 in a laser sintering technique, dyed with an metallic pearl embedded with the system layered within the front piece and shoulder mount.
