With the release of its Spring/Summer 2016 collection, Chromat sent its adrenaline-sensing dress that features responsive Intel Curie technology down the runway. The sleek black dress boasts a wing-like frame on its back that expands when a rush of adrenaline is sensed.

Much like the fight-or-flight response of an animal like a porcupine, when an increased heart rate or quickened breathing is sensed, the framework expands to make the dress, and therefore the woman, appear larger and more imposing. The dress itself is made of black 3D-printed panels and expandable carbon fiber, maintaining a lightweight feel while containing the ability to grow.

While it may take a bold woman to wear, this dress has a body-language of its own, enabling a person to wear their heart on their sleeve, quite literally.
