Nerd Alert: A Film-Inspired Dress You Can Actually Watch in the Dark

Nerd Alert: A Film-Inspired Dress You Can Actually Watch in the Dark

May 29, 2012

Often when it comes to film nerd approved wearables, most fans usually focus on t-shirts leaving couture lovers in the cold. Enter designer Emily Steel, whose LED-savvy "Little Slide Dress" recreates the magic of cinema and fuses technology, art, and fashion. Steel told Design Taxi her dress was inspired by classic movies, and we couldn't be more enamored with it.

The designer's dress literally turns on when the lights are lowered, thanks to its ability to detect ambient sources through a sensor connected to a Arduino Lilypad. In bright lighting, the dress simply appears like a shiny, artful construction of slides. If you enjoy wearing your love of film on your sleeve (or skirt), visit Steel's Tumblr for more information.
