And it comes with some sort of story about robots! Designed by Nange Magro, an MA student at London College of Fashion, the dress lights up and opens up (like a flower) depending on levels of brain concentration. They’re recieved through an electroencephalographic chip, that can read signals via sensors that are implanted in the hat. So, basically, this is a fun excuse to wear a hat! But how do you concentrate properly? Nange claims:
‘It does take a little bit of practice to be aware and control it. Through my early testing on the electronic part of the project, I have found out that at the start, for some people helps to concentrate on maths calculations and for others it is useful concentrating on visualising a picture, but the method which seems to help the most is reading.”
Basically, I would worry about my dress flying open every time I picked up a magazine. But also, that would be the coolest thing ever. If this appeals to you, you can check out Nange’s work at his website.
