UK news outlet The Daily Mail just posted images and video of what be the most mind-blowing piece of clothing we’ve heard of as of late: a glow-in-the-dark dress fashioned out of the world’s lightest fabric that actually responds to people’s gaze. Crazy, right?
Montreal-based, China born fashion designer Ying Gao outfitted pieces from her latest collection with special sensory technology, making the apparel react when looked upon. Eye-tracking micro-software means that the garments actually activate upon people’s glances, meaning Gao’s creations move, change shape, and/or light up as people turn heads! Want more? You’re in luck–The Creators Project picked Gao’s brain about her high-tech wares last year and the designer herself posted this preview of her interactive dresses, entitled ‘Playtime’, on her YouTube account!
Though they may not be the most wearable pieces, Gao definitely scores some props from us for innovation! You can check out the entire story on the dresses over at the Daily Mail website…and believe me, this kind of craziness is something you probably don’t want to miss!
What do you think of these glowing garments? Stylish, or simply a gimmick?
