      You get the dress but have to subscribe to Dress Cloud for $50/mo and if you decide to discontinue it the dress randomly turns into a 90s era WB shirt and locks itself that way until you re-up

    That’s a cute dress. If I pirate it, will I get a Creative Cloud warning pop up when it dials home?

    “Hurry up, we’re gonna be late for our reservation.”

    “Hold on, my dress has to install an update!”

        That video is included in the article, it’s just at the very bottom for some reason.

      Thanks… Been seeing the article but didn’t even want to bother with reading about it.

      The video is pretty damn cool though.

    you know you are talking to an engineer when they say

    Non-emissive material with reflective light-diffuser modules

    instead of “mirrors”

      I believe most mirrors can’t turn their reflectivity on and off based on an electric current.

      I could be totally wrong about mirrors though

    For some reason I’m not super impressed with this. Looks too much like you’re wearing e-ink panels. Call me when these are fully functioning OLEDs that kinetically charge when you walk.

      Each one of those scales operates as an independent display, and coordinating them is quite a challenge. I’d be interested in knowing what is driving them, because it’s surely not very portable.

        I’m sure orchestrating this isn’t super easy (however, if you treat every “display” as a “pixel”, Idk how this coding is different than a woman wearing a dress made of addressable LEDs— on the surface it doesn’t seem super complicated engineering), but it appears as unimpressive.

          EInk and monochrome LCD Type Displays need very low power, because you only need a tiny bit to switch them from one side to the other, but none to keep it black or white.

        I miss when everyone wasn’t super pessimistic about absolutely everything and it was ok to do things for these reasons
