Gigapixel The Kine­mat­ics Dress

3D-printed cou­ture from the fu­ture

Stuff Singapore - - CONTENTS -

You might think you’re look­ing at a dress, but you’re ac­tu­ally look­ing at a kind of 3D-printed chain­mail from the fu­ture. The Kine­mat­ics Dress, de­vel­oped by Jes­sica Rosenkrantz and Jesse Louis-Rosen­berg of Amer­i­can de­sign stu­dio Ner­vous Sys­tem (n-e-r-v-o-u-s.com), is made from thou­sands of in­ter­lock­ing hinges, which are printed from rigid plas­tic; but be­cause of the free­dom of move­ment each com­po­nent has, the dress it­self moves and flows like fab­ric. What’s even more amaz­ing is that the whole dress was printed as a sin­gle piece.
