Fashionable or Too Techie? The Video Dress

Turkish designer Hussein Cahalayan presented this high tech video dress at the Milan Design Fair. With 15,600 embedded LED lights in the fabric, this dress displays a time lapse of a rose opening and closing. It is currently on display at the 10 Corso Como gallery in Milan, along with the mechanical dresses from the show in Paris. Check out the video below to see it in action. Fashionable or over the top techie?

Totally cute. Settle down ladies, i'm sure this is just the "proof of concept". They have bendable monitors now, i'm sure some fashion designer will get ahold of it and make some really cute stuff.

I think it is a REALLY great idea! I'd love to see people wearing something like this in the future! Imagine having a dress that you could literally change the pattern of whenever you wanted!

This designer has to be kidding. He keeps putting crap like this out, but does he do it to be artsy fartsy or because he actually expects someone out there to WEAR it? Ugh.

This is awesome. He is clearly making a statement regarding the interaction of technology with modern man. As we progress towords more dependence on electronics, they become more integrated with our sense of self, i.e. fashion, the most outward expression of self. What if you had a dress that expressed how you felt via imagery? If you haven't seen his mechanical dresses from last year you should check it out. Cheers-- HelloKittyMini

FUGLY and I am sure it is not comfortable at all. And wouldn't the LED's get hot after awhile?

I'm sure its not that healthy for your body either, I'd never wear it, we wear clothes to express personality, I think this one's just over the top.
