Introducing The Tweet-Powered Dress From Microsoft & Bloomingdales

The worlds of fashion and technology are becoming further and further intertwined as some of the designs on display at New York Fashion Week have shown us. A few days ago we had Diane Von Furstenberg and her models wearing Google’s “augmented reality” Glasses at her Spring/Summer 2013 show and now in a collaboration between Bloomingdales and Microsoft we have the “Printing Dress”.

The “Printing Dress” is made primarily of paper, it has a projector beneath the surface, four circuit boards and a keyboard located just below the bodice so that the wearer can post tweets which are then displayed on the dress.

Visitors to the Bloomingdales store were encouraged to tweet with the hashtag #MSBloomingdales to see their messages come up on the sample dress in real time. It was created by Microsoft Research and is a fine example of the new craze in wearable technology!
