I came across one of those strange movies on the net, in which the film producer had filmed a lady who obviously starts naked and then uses some kind of spray on foam / cream to make what appears to be a white dress, except the film is run backwards, so it seems her dress is disappearing into the can.

(And no I am not giving you the link, this is a family board :P )

This reminded me of an old chestnut from Sci-Fi, spray on clothes. I suspect the nearest we have to that today is liquid latex which gets a mention on an episode of CSI. One of the drawbacks would be when taking this off, it would be like a body wax :o (ouch)

Did any sci-fi story using this kind of attire ever address that one, or was it over looked.

Come to think of it, did Sci fi ever have spray on clothes or was that some kind of futuristice envisioning of a decade long past.

Spray-on clothes are used in Stanislaw Lem's novel "Return from the Stars".

Maybe that stuff became unattractive when mankind realized that non-iron nylon shirts were anything else than the final word on clothing.

Well, It is sunny outside and I am going to unspray my clothing for a while. I need the vitamin D and I have no neighbours within eye-shot. (good thing, too)

In the 3000s they will have spray-on bikinis.

This does not make a good impression here [-X

I thought we could discuss the concept and how certain aspects of reality are overlooked.

like the problem of removing the garment without having a full body wax job.

Unless you had some kind of special solvent, but then you could have pranksters spraying people with it.


I remember reading once a short story in the gaming magazine Imagine - now defunct since the 1980's, where a lady turns up at a reception wearing nothing but braclets and a necklace of crystals that created a shifting cloak of an obscuring light field, that acted as a sort of covering, but random shifting gaps in the lights revealed she was wearing nothing underneath.

The main protagonist guessed what this technology was and ordered the gates be closed so she could not slip out before the power crystals were exhausted.

Getting back to spray on clothing, was the idea just to save on wardrobe space? :-?

Well, how much is there to discuss? It's a pretty silly concept.

Besides the removal difficulties, you have the problem of single-use clothing that can't be worn anymore once your spray can runs out. You have severe limitations in style and functionality. You have a lot of unnecessary waste. On the other hand, you may possibly save a small amount of space, and you don't have to do laundry.

Aside from the the gee-whiz factor and the titillation factor, there's not much to recommend this technology. If it ever becomes available, it will probably serve the same market that bubble-wrap lingerie serves today.

They have bubble-wrap lingerie?? Where do I get some?

Saw something like this on Ripley's Believe It or Not. I won't provide any links for obvious reseasons, but the show was with the following 'clothing' options:

Deviant Liquid Latex and Deviant Wrapid Fashion Tape

I can think of one use, that is as safety equipment.
If you get lost in the wilderness or on a mountain you could get out your can of spray cloth and sprayyourself with highly insulating flurecent safty cloth for the night.

Or you can just carry the cloth with you, rolled up or stuffed in a sack. It might be a bit bulkier, but you won't have to worry about accidentally puncturing the canister, and you can use the cloth more than once. There's still no real advantage in spray-on cloth.

... titillation...
That word always cracks me up for some reason. :lol:

this is so for people who plan to be out for the night.
But I was thinking more of emergency equipment, that you could have in your car, for if you got caught in a blizard and ran out of petrol. Or if you were out walking in the mountains and fell and broke your leg.

Actually you can get emergancy blankets, which look like tin foil and roll up pretty tightly

And if you use them to lay out in the sun with, you get a nasty sunburn. :oops:

WFT points out two of the advantages. There are others, such as dealing with excretory functions, sharing with other people, etc.

Now that I think about it, I think spray-off clothing would be a better selling product.

Wouldn't spray-on clothing be better for the excrement part of the thread, though? Of course, a can of 'spray on, spray off' toilet paper might come in handy, too. :lol:

Has anyone considered retinal damage that might result?

No, not from the spray on latex, but from people attempting to gouge out their eyes when the same people who think they look good in spandex start using the stuff!

Why is it that I can look at something and be taken to the underlying concept, which was explored in sci-fi, or even on a lower plane work out the shooting sequence.

When others look at the same thing and complain that they did not aquire a certain level of gratification that comes near the base of Maslow's triangle of needs?

:-?

BTW, what was the rationale for speay on clothes in Stanislaw Lem's novel "Return from the Stars".

Because you're a sage and a prophet, obviously.

Simply to add to a futuristic and hedonistic environment, IIRC (the book was published in the early sixties). But the sense of futurity and hedonism was relevant to the story.

I'm guessing because when you first came across the video, you watched it with no idea that it might involve any sexual content. (How did you find it? Were you researching movie techniques, sci-fi, or looking for cheap porn?)

I, on the other hand, went to some trouble tracking it down for no other reason than sexual gratification. When it failed to deliver that, I was left feeling cheated. By you! So, in a way, this all your fault! :D
