Anouk Wipprecht’s Latest 3D Printed SpeakerDress Turns You Into an Alien Boombox

Dutch 3D printing designer Anouk Wipprecht has made headlines with her 3D printed and interactive SmokeDress, SpiderDress and Drinkbot Dress. Her latest creation – the SpeakerDress – becomes your own eerie wearable Boombox.

It is based on Alienology speakers & Anouk’s own teensy + audio adaptor; with a set of sensors in the front of the dress allowing to modify sounds using hand gestures. While the SomeDress and SpiderDress reacted to external stimuli, and the Drinkbot served you drinks on demand, the SpeakerDress turns the body in an veritable mobile hi-fi system.

The Dress was designed at Autodesk Pier 9, the Autodesk creative studio that Anouk Wipprecht has collaborated with for a long time, using Autodesk Fusion 360 software. The original prototyped was first showcased at #LFFTF2017 (Looking Forward Fashion Tech Festival).
