Parallax Dress

Parallax Dress

Berlin-based engineer and designer Lina Wassong first became inspired to explore the aesthetic aspects of technology while living in San Francisco, the capital of tech. Wassong’s designs seek innovative ways of changing the analog world into a digital environment.

Self-learning systems and the integration of autonomous machines let us explore technology from a new perspective. Machines become more aware of their environment through artificial intelligence. The Parallax dress merges new intelligent technology with complex evolutionary behavior and makes us rethink intelligence in our digital age. The design concept is based on the unique nervous system of an octopus. The octopuses’ control center extends into all eight limbs, allowing the arms to move autonomously, which gives it specialized problem-solving abilities.

Microcontrolling mechanisms within the dress make the six individually controlled arms interact with the environment by detecting movement through infrared sensing technology. Formlabs‘ high-resolution SLA 3D printing made the complex structural designs, for the electronic and mechanical components, possible.
