start-up-idea-mind-dressConsumers may soon be able to think themselves naked with a mind-control dress that changes colour and style using brainwaves.


The Mechapolypse dress lights up and changes shape with changes in concentration in the mind, which are calculated by brainwave sensors.


London-based designer Nange Magro’s latex frock flashes with a silvery light when the wearer is focused. Magro says reading could help the user light up the dress.


“I am a designer with a particular passion for electronic garments and latex,” Magro says.


“My work tends to look at the dark, surreal side of reality. I also love working with graphic/animation software to express my ideas and art.”


Will electronic garments be the next big thing to hit the runways? If they are, the concept could be worth investing in.
