Utilizing wireless and solar-powered energy sources, the patterns on the interactive costumes will morph according to information transmitted from a wireless weathervane to a computer chip implanted in the fabric. I have already written about the Sky dress that changes structure and emits sounds based on the wind and clouds in sky.
Here’s a few details, photos and sketches about the Sun dress. The garment will display lights in motion based on changes in the sun. A checkerboard of LEDs on the dress will be set in motion based on UV and sun intensity readings. The greater the intensity of the sun, the brighter the dress will glow. The more UV rays outside, the more the dress’ LEDs will flash, like a warning/danger sign. The changing patterns of the fully addressable LEDs will also permit to graphically represent the rising and setting sun (the LEDs will gradually turn on / off in a horizontal fashion) as well as the changing direction of the sunrays.
