CuteCircuit Dress makes you glow, literally
by Mark R
It seems like yesterday that we were covering the jacket with 200 laser diodes. Probably because it was yesterday.
Today, there is another piece of glowing clothing, but lasers are not a part of it. It does have some special lighting.
The woman that you see here is Kate Perry, and she is wearing a lovely glowing outfit. That’s right, the glow on her isn’t a reflection, but it is the CuteCircuit dress. It has strips of light that allow the fabric to have a soft glow.
CuteCircuit is the designer of the Galaxy Dress that we covered a while ago, and glows with 24,000 LEDs.
This particular CuteCircuit dress reminds me of some of the glowing parts of Queen Amidala’s wardrobe from the Star Wars prequels. Yeah, you can from a lot of science fiction wardrobes to get this one.
I can’t help but wonder if there is a future where all clothing will be glowing. If so, then how do you recharge the battery. I suppose that you could sit at your computer and plug in a retractable USB cord.
I’m assuming that, like the Mogwai from Gremlins, you do not want to get this dress wet. Of course, that is just a theory. Still, I’m assuming that you wouldn’t want to get a dress like this wet anyway.
