The embroidered “keyboard” of this dress acts as a display. When typing on an iPAD that is connected wirelessly to the dress, the letters of the keyboard become illuminated. The back of the dress is connected with two silver ribbons. When clipped together, the dress is switched on and when unconnected, the dress is turned off.
The dress is made of white linen with embroidered silk organza. LEDs have been stitched on the linen base using an Arduino platform and XBee wireless system.
