The Little Slide Dress

littleslidedress

Little Slide Dress by Emily Steel via psfk:

The dress is constructed out of individual slide film images that are backed with LED’s. An Arduino Lilypad connected to a light sensor controls the brightness of the LED’s. The sensor reads the how much ambient light there is and uses this value to determine if the LED’s will be off or on. When there is lots of light the LED’s are off and it looks like a shiny black dress with small hints that something else is going on. Once the sensor determines there is the right amount of light for LED’s to be seen in their full brightness it turns them on. When the dress is on the lights slowly pulse and the images on the dress come alive.

  1. Woah, that’s so cool!

  2. Cool dress.

  3. Brilliantly thought out idea, especially the variable lighting. Give it 10 more years and those might be LCD screens with video footage (of course having said 10 years it will probably only be 2 now 🙂 )
