VIDEO: Japan Invents Interactive Light Up Cloth

Made of diffusive optic fibers

The future of Japanese fashion looks brighter and more colorful than ever as scientists in lab coats have just cooked up interactive light-up fabric from fiber optics. Wonder no more, “What color shall I clad myself into today?” as you can change your hue with the touch of a pen. Watch the demo below!



As the guy said, the next step is to make it so people can change the color of the fabric remotely, for example, by pointing a magic doodad at someone performing at someone onstage. I wonder what wacky pop diva will get there first? Imagine being able to change the color of Kyary’s dress…Lady Gaga’s underwear…or Miley Cyrus’ tongue!
