Galaxy Dress will light up your world

I’m not the biggest fan of LED dresses, because although I like to stand out in a crowd, I don’t like to stand out so obviously. It makes me feel like a Glow Worm or Firefly or something. Check out the ‘Galaxy Dress’ it claims to be the largest wearable display in the world and will be the center piece of an exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. It’s the most colorful LED display you can have on your body. “We used the smallest full-color LEDs, flat like paper, and measuring only 2 by 2 mm,” say designers Francesca Rosella and Ryan Genz in an email. “The circuits are extra-thin, flexible, and hand embroidered on a layer of silk in a way that gives it stretch so the LED fabric can move like normal fabric with lightness and fluidity.” The duo run an interactive clothing company called CuteCircuit. This dress also has four layers of silk chiffon and a pleated silk organza crinoline skirt. The lights run on many iPod batteries. Where you don’t see the flash of LED lights, you will see the glitter of more than 4000 hand-applied Swarovski crystals that range from clear crystal to bright pink. The lights will run on the batteries for about an hour.
