Fashion-tech designer Anouk Wipprecht has built a Spider Dress, which reacts based on how close you're standing and how quickly you approached. It's based on 'proxemics': the study of personal space... although how much of that counts as science is an open question. Let's talk about Edward T Hall, about what counts as science, and what happens if you get too close to someone.

Anouk's dress is on display at the Autodesk Gallery in San Francisco until March 2017: http://www.autodesk.com/gallery/

FULL DISCLOSURE: Autodesk were good enough to cover my travel to San Francisco, but they haven't paid me and had no control over the script, the content or the final cut!
