Maestro-controlled Spider Dress 2.0 at CES 2015

Posted by Jon on 9 January 2015

This week at the Consumer Electronics Show, some of our engineers got to see Spider Dress 2.0, which was being exhibited by its designer, Anouk Wipprecht, at the Intel booth. The dress is designed to react to invasions of the wearer’s personal space with threatening insect-like legs controlled by servos. Two Maxbotix proximity sensors are used to detect movement, and two 12-channel Maestro servo controllers  (one under each shoulder pad) control the response of the legs. The whole dress is controlled by an Intel Edison.

A nook under each shoulderpad holds a 12-channel Maestro servo controller.

Anouk explains the dress in detail in this video, which was produced by Make, and features a brief cameo by yours truly:
