Fiber optic dress communicates brainwaves #WearableWednesday


High School student Grace wrote in to share her awesome fiber optic brainwave dress with us – very cool! Thanks so much for sharing Grace! She writes:

For my high school science and engineering project, I made a piece of wearable technology that visually communicates the wearer’s brainwaves. In other words, I made a dress that changes colors according to the wearer’s attention and meditation levels. I used optic fibers and RGBLEDs to illuminate the colors on the dress. I designed this dress after a flapper dress from the 1920’s. To get the brainwave data onto my Arduino, I hacked a MindFlex headpiece. I love all your tutorials; they inspired me to make wearable technology.
