The ultimate defense against the wandering eye: this 3D-printed design project reacts to anyone that's looking, thanks to a built-in camera and some facial tracking algorithms. Architect and designer Behnaz Farahi fashioned a top out of plastic, monochromatic spikes: these then undulate depending on what the camera picks up... and where you're looking. Yes, you. The project is the latest 3D-printed collaboration between Farahi, Pier 9 and Autodesk. As you'll see in the video after the break, there's a creepy degree of organic movement to the spikes — it looks like the clothing is almost breathing, ironically making you want to stare at it even more. Sorry.
