Tradition, meet technology. One Indian designer has taken the sari (or saree), the time-honored garment of South Asian women, into the digital age with the creation of the world’s first “singing sari.” The “Swaramadhuri,” which literally translates as “singing silk sari,” as envisioned by P. Mohan, comes equipped with eight embedded microspeakers on its border. On the loose edge of the fabric, which is usually draped over one shoulder, sits a small 2GB MP3 player that can play up to 200 songs continuously for four hours.
