Microsoft Launches Tweet-Powered Dress For NY Fashion Week [Video]

The ‘Printing Dress’ is a Microsoft Research project that explores the intersection of fashion and technology and displays social media data in real time.

Microsoft displayed their innovative ‘Printing Dress‘, a tweet-powered garment, at Bloomingdale’s during New York Fashion Week. The prototype explores the intersection of fashion and technology, integrating computer components into a dress made almost entirely of paper. It displays tweets using an integrated projector, and visitors were invited to tag #MSBloomingdales to see their messages on the dress in real-time. Check out the video below to see it in action:
