Intel wants to ensure that your personal space stays just that–personal–so designer Anouk Wipprecht created the Spider Dress for them. The 3-D printed ensemble has robotic spider legs surrounding the collar and is powered by Intel Edison technology. Proximity sensors and biometric signals measure your stress levels and infer when someone gets a little too close for comfort. In response, the dress’s legs shoot forward in a “territorial attack.” Watch correspondent Katie Linendoll find out the hard way in this video.
