In Brief

The Little Slide Dress is made up of film slides backed with embedded LEDs, which reveal the images when turned on.

This illuminated dress made up of film slides is a wearable tech version of the little black dress. The Little Slide Dress, designed by Emily Steel, blends modern technology with classic film and uses light to make the images come alive. The individual slides are backed with LEDs that are controlled by a light sensor that is connected to an Arduino Lilypad. When there is lots of light, the LEDs turn off and the dress looks shiny and black, with subtle hints that there might be more to it than meets the eye. When it gets darker, the LEDs are switched on and as the lights slowly pulse, the slide images are revealed.
