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.
