The weird and erm, wonderful? (Not for the squeamish!)

Well it's another snowy day in tranquil Inverdruie.
Today's inventory shall consist of a bit of pampering, getting cosy beside the fire and, well not doing very much!
On lazy days I love nothing better than seeing what oddities the world wide web has to offer ...As always the world of fashion never disappoints.


Ok so you've been warned.....
Let me introduce Naomi Kizhner.
Naomi has created a jewellery collection entitled Energy Addicts as part of her graduation project at Jerusalem’s Hadassah College and it's not for the faint hearted!

The collection has three pieces named (from left to right) The Blinker, The Blood Bridge and The E-Pulse.
Each piece have needles that hook into the wearers veins and converts movement and blood flow into energy which could (in theory) be used to charge your mobile phone.

Fear not, you won't be finding these unusual trinkets in your local shops.
Kizhner has simply created the collection to provoke us to rethink our relationship with technology and if future energy supplies deplete, are we willing to go as far as to use ourselves as a natural resource?

Would you be brave enough to wear Kizhner's designs?
Personally, I think I'll pass! EEEK!

Now to Dutch based designer Anouk Wipprecht who has taken wearable technology to the next level....

Sick of creeps hitting on you at the bar?
Well the spider dress might just be for you!
The dress (which features robotic legs) two sets of monitors to measure the distance from those around you and the other measures your breathing patterns.

From this information it will 'poke' people away from you if your not 'feeling' it or it will invite them closer.....sort of like a robotic wingwoman.
I wonder if this could help you get to the bar quicker on a Saturday night?

Thoughts on Anouk's dress?
