Wear this dress very, very carefully as it goes transparent the moment you are sexually aroused.

Aptly named 'Intimacy 2.0', the dress gets transparent when the wearer is aroused. Developed by Netherlands-based Studio Roosegarde, the dress is available in white or black fake leather material.

Intimacy is a high-tech fashion project exploring the relation between intimacy and technology. Its high-tech garments entitled 'Intimacy White' and 'Intimacy Black' are made out of opaque smart e-foils that become increasingly transparent based on close and personal encounters with people.

Tiny sensors embedded in the dress detect changes in wearer's body temperature and heart rate.

As the heart rate goes up, the e-foils transform into a clear plastic, leaving all bare open.

"Technology is used here not merely functional but also as a tool to create intimacy as well as privacy on a direct, personal level which in our contemporary tech society is becoming increasingly important," the developers were quoted as saying in a Daily Mail report.

The dress has thin leather strips embedded with electronic-foils around the bust area.

Remember one thing: Even emotions like excitement, fear and anxiety may cause you expose far more than intended!

What: Intimacy 2.0 features Studio Roosegaarde's new, wearable dresses composed of leather and smart e-foils.

Specifications: 'Black' and 'White' dresses, length 100cm, width 40 cm. Smart foils, wireless technologies, electronics, LEDs, copper and other media.
