Touch-Sensitive Dress Adds High-Tech Flair To Barbie’s Wardrobe [Pics]

The popular doll gets a wearable technology update with an LED infused LBD.

Being no stranger to the fashion world, Barbie has also been wearing the latest in runway couture. Keeping up with Barbie’s insatiable fashion appetite, Mattel recently designed a new digital dress that uses LED and touch-screen technology. The technology embedded into the Barbie doll allows for customizable designs. With a simple tap, Kids can turn on the LEDs and change the dress color.

The ingenuity lies Barbie’s little black dress, which uses a 4.5 square inch resistive touch panel and 114 tri-color LEDS. Built-in memory can store up to 40 different designs, giving Barbie one versatile outfit.
