Intimacy & Technology

Diana Adams at Bitrebels has written a interesting post asking if we all are becoming less inhibited as a result of technology.

As an example, Diana mentions the Intimacy 2.0 dress created by Studio Roosegaarde.


INTIMACY is a fashion project exploring the relation between intimacy and technology. Its high-tech garments entitled ‘Intimacy White’ and ‘Intimacy Black’ are made out of opaque smart e-foils that become increasingly transparent based on close and personal encounters with people.

Social interactions determine the garmentsʼ level of transparency, creating a sensual play of disclosure.

INTIMACY 2.0 features Studio Roosegaardeʼs new, wearable dresses composed of leather and smart e-foils which are perfect to wear on the red carpet. In response to the heartbeat of each person, INTIMACY 2.0 becomes more or less transparent.


October is National Bullying Prevention Month, and Shira Lazar from What’s Trending invites everyone to join the #StopBullying live stream town hall today 3PM/PST around Cyberbullying and what we can do to stop bullying once and for all.
