Now, clothes that change colour at your will

A new line of clothes, which has incorporated tiny, flexible LEDs into dresses, has become the first fully controllable electronic clothing.The new line, named Lume, was showcased last week at the International Symposium on Wearable Computers in Zurich, Switzerland.

The collection featured a bomber jacket, a tunic, and an open-backed dress – all of which can be controlled by a smartphone app, New Scientist reported.

The LEDs have been enmeshed in fabric so as to avoid touching the wearer’s skin.

The electronic parts in the clothes are easily removable.

Lume’s creator, fashion designer Elizabeth Bigger, said that users can ‘control the light pattern of the clothes to match other elements in their outfit, react to a sensor event, or even echo the colours in the surrounding environment.
