Dutch fashion designers Cor Baauw and Leonie Baauw of Local Androids. have devised something they call Like Living Organisms, a neckpiece and dress made of disturbingly lifelike fake skin with veins that beat when near people and deflate when touched – “as a sign of trust.” Says Co.Design: “The garment comes equipped with two sensors and air pumps. When the wearer approaches another person, one sensor forces air to flow through the veins, simulating a pulse. A second sensor, which responds to touch, then flattens the veins.” We wonder: Are batteries included?
