Animated dress lets you wear a living robotic ecosystem

If a female friend ever asks your advice, as an experienced geek, what she should wear to meet her confirmed technophile date, we have the perfect suggestion for you: The Animated Pen Nib Dress.

Designed by Steven Tai and John Nussey, the dress features 795 gold colored pen nibs that are mounted on tiny motors sewn into the dress that move in eerie robotic fashion when prompted. The nibs can be programmed to move in specific sequences, giving the garment a shimmering appearance that makes it seem almost alive. Leaving aside the fact that it has no direct practical use, this is possibly the best investment for any woman looking to publicly fly her techie flag for all to see. You can see the dress moving in creepy, cybernetic fashion in the video below.
