Toolkits: Phonegap, BluetoothLE, Arduino

Whitedress (originally named Dressing Everything) is a garment that explores the possibility of turning human bodies into expressive platforms. Empowered by embedded smart LEDs and Bluetooth LE technology, Whitedress visualizes different data source through animated color-changing lights. Wearers can choose the data source for Whitedress to display, by using the app on a paired smartphone device. This user flow brings the wearers with an alternated wearable experience -  it's not consistently collecting data from human bodies but feeding data back to human bodies.
