Designer and innovator Daan Roosegaarde has made a name for himself in the past thanks to tech-infused fashion, including projects like the glow-in-the-dark Smart Highway as well as the Intimacy project. The latter would be an interactive dress which actually ends up as transparent in response to social encounters. Well, a recent interview at Design Indaba saw Roosegaarde share that his company intends to bring the Intimacy project to new levels by charging a different direction. In fact, Studio Roosegaarde intends to develop business suits for men which will turn transparent whenever the wearer lies, which should be interesting to see just how many suits he can sell in the long run when folks are aware of what it is capable of in the first place.
What do you think the next futuristic garment or concept that Studio Roosegaarde should come up with? I am thinking of dubbing any future lie detecting garments the Pinocchio range, where any pants or skirt that detects a lie would automatically burst into flames. Now that would certainly put the fear deep into psyches of workers forced to wear it for sure, and would most probably be a bestseller in countries like North Korea.
