World’s largest wearable display is a dress decked in LEDs

LEDs have certainly developed into a fashion accessory, and if you trust me, they are here to stay that way, providing the much needed sustainable support to the fashion world. If you were in a thought just otherwise, then take a look at this Galaxy Dress created with 24,000 LEDs by Cute Circuit, doesn’t this just sum up the glorification?

Striking as it can get, the Galaxy Dress is embedded with 24,000 LEDs that each measures only 2x2mm. If that’s just not much for the wordless glitter, the dress also carries 4,000 hand-applied Swarovski crystals in it composition. Drawing power for tiny iPod batteries which can keep the Dress glowing for an hour, a prototype of the Galaxy Dress is on exhibition at Chicago’s Museum of Science and Industry. More pictures after the cut.
