Fabric that sees right through you: weekend watch

Is there really a practical application for a material that changes transparency depending on how the wearer feels?

Then again, does it matter?

Technologically intriguing, ‘Intimacy 2.0′ by Studio Roosegaarde is a project “exploring the relation between intimacy and technology”. With these garments, the transparency of the fabric changes in response to your heart-rate. Practically be damned: this is sheer clothing on a whole other level that’s simply too cool not to share.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person.
