there have been many of them on the catwalks and on display. they are popular because 3D printing actually lends itself quite well to print
extravagant fashion - it’s up to personal taste to like them or not.
for a while the rigidity of the printed fabric was frustrating but new and more interesting materials to print clothes with allow different textures
and flexibility, SLS process makes them fit impeccably.
then came the 4D dress, kinematics dresses, the printed particles now move and flow with movements.
the smart dress however takes the cake: this robotic spider dress features animatronic mechanical limbs that respond to external stimuli and
defend personal space of the wearer, it is supposed to extend the wearer’s intuition. Approach the wearer too aggressively and the mechanical limbs
move up to a position signalling ‘stay away’. the wearer can also control the movements through breathing.
the 3D printed Attack Dress
i am quite stunned! i am fond of 3D printed wearables and i’m sure they will be ready made and available soon. would you wear them? i would. that
smart dress however, i hope, will stay as a gimmick (unless off course they would find a better use for it).
wouldn’t this be the worst nightmare of a date you can imagine? potentially getting fully horrible? would you be happy to see her?
It looks like most of the designs are for celebrities looking for the outrageous factor. I don't know if the average women would be attracted to
those styles. Who knows, they may become more main stream. It's interesting how they're applying the 3D printing technology. I see they now have 3D
Would be great for making costumes. Especially armor types. Even would have lots of fun making them into every day and more functional clothing.
There's already some clothing in alt culture that comes close to these designs, while not printed yet anyway, may be easier for designers to to make
the clothing if opting to use the printers instead.
