This Is the Dress That Shows If You Are in a Relationship #WearableWednesday #wearabletech #fashion #art

Isabella Tencate loves light and you may recall her Under the Sea LED swimsuit. A recent video reveals Express Yourself, a dress that shows relationship status with LEDs. The Arduino powered dress is linked through Bluetooth to a phone app that controls light colors based on a status such as “married”, “single” and “not interested”. Of course the most colorful light pattern is also the most intriguing; could that mean expressing interest? It’s certainly one way to get attention and it beats the typical Facebook status. You can create a similar Bluetooth connected fashion using Adafruit’s Bluefruit LE. If you want a stitchable microcontroller version, check out our learning guide for FLORA Bluefruit LE. The FLORA and matching BLE module can be stitched into an outfit using conductive thread.

Of course if you would rather go with solder and wire, we’ve got you covered with the Adafruit Feather 32u4 Bluefruit BLE. This one-stop-shop has everything built in, so you just need to add the LEDs. Either way you are going to be able to use your phone to control your fashion and amaze friends. Whether you want to create your own symbolism with lights or just have your outfits match your accessories, this is the way to go. Let us know which path of making you choose and make sure to send us a video of your fashion creation.
