Seth Moczydlowski is normally an industrial designer, however, when a group of fashion design students needed an Arduino capable member, he picked up a needle and thread. While members of the group worked on the dress design, Seth worked on a circuit mock-up using a FLORA microcontroller, NeoPixels and a microphone.
The majority of the circuit is hidden in a fabric belt, with a nicely finished pocket for the battery. Following Adafruit best practices, Seth sealed all of his knots of conductive thread using clear nail polish. This is really important for a lasting creation, as the thread has a tendency to unravel. As you can see in the video below, the result is a beautiful dress that reacts to sound. Thanks to the cutouts in the flower design (which looks laser-cut), the light cascades nicely onto the dress.
