This Tech Dress Will Make You Beautiful Moonlight #WearableWednesday #wearabletech #fashion #DIY

Fashion tech definitely attracts the dreamers, and Snow Yi certainly brings attention to the moon with her billowy white dress. The under-layer hides inward facing LEDs that cast light downward, mimicking the glow of moonlight. The surprise element is a sensor that detects the posture of the wearer, allowing the light to be altered in the dress, much like the moon phases. Although the sensor is not described, it could be a flex sensor or an accelerometer/compass sensor. The details of gathered cotton and lace give the dress a vintage feel, while the uneven hemline suggests the contemporary. The silver shoes add a nice touch of reflection for the finished piece. Snow, a student of Hongvik University, certainly put a lot of time into the project, and I’m happy to report her work was recently honored with a Korea Creative Award. I’d also like to acknowledge the magical video created by Lee Tae Don (DJ Wailer). It’s apparent the school fosters collaboration by the interesting projects Snow has been posting on her Vimeo page, so be sure to give them a look.

If you are interested in creating wearable tech that is responsive, definitely check out our learning guide on FLORA Sensors. FLORA is our microcontroller that can be stitched or soldered and it has a great selection of sensors that can react to environment (like light), as well as movement. There are so many possibilities of what you might create, from jackets that make sounds when touched to slippers that light up at night. Whether you are looking to prototype the practical or construct your next cosplay, this mighty microcontroller will become your best friend. Have fun creating!
