Answer Your Mobile Phone, Your Dress Is Blinking
Maria Sharapova was on hand to unveil a prototype of a dress that lights up when the wearer’s cell phone or smartphone rings. The dress was designed by British fashion student Georgie Davies for a school project and partnership with Sony Ericsson aimed at incorporating new technology into fashion. Davies said the dress was designed to connect to the wearer’s phone via Bluetooth technology. “When you’re in a pub or a bar, you can never, ever hear your phone,” Davies told Reuters. The good thing is this dress is actually wearable and not at all overly Sci-Fi-looking. The dress is knee-length, white, short-sleeved, and is embellished along one side with translucent white scales (think square paillettes) that move and light up. See more photos here. I’d wear it. Would you?
