Combining technology and fashion together, one can produce interesting results, and if you remember the Sound Illuminating Dress we featured recently, you’re going to love this latest geeky dress.
It is called Printing dress, and surprisingly this tech dress is designed by Microsoft’s employees: Asta Roseway from Microsoft Research division and Sheridan Martin Small from Xbox division. The thing that makes this dress so special is that it can display your tweets using the projector and a laptop, and besides this unusual feature, this dress comes with the keyboard buttons that have been sewn into the dress itself. As you see, due to the hardware requirements to display the tweets at the front of the dress, this dress isn’t intended for wearing, and it’s just a prototype so far. We have to mention that Printing dress has won Best Concept and Best in Show awards at the International Symposium on Wearable Computers that was held in San Francisco this June.
This Printing dress is amazing, and it really takes social networking to a completely new but rather awkward level, but sadly, it’s just a prototype for now.
