Probe Dresses / Garments with which emotions can be expressed

Probe Dresses

Discipline: Professional Concept

Probe Dresses

Discipline: Professional Concept

Philips Design developed a series of dynamic garments as part of the ongoing SKIN exploration research into the area known as “emotional sensing”. The garments, which are intended for demonstration purposes only, demonstrate how electronics can be incorporated into fabrics and garments in order to express the emotions and personality of the wearer. The marvelously intricate, wearable prototypes include “Bubelle” – a dress surrounded by a delicate “bubble” illuminated by patterns that change dependent on skin contact – and “Frison”, a body suit that reacts to being blown on by igniting a private constellation of tiny LEDs.
