Solar Powered Dress is Techie-Flapper Chic

Solar-powered dress

What better way to boogie the night away than clad in this ultramod solar-powered mini? Not only does this sleek number look extra-sexy on the dance floor, but it also soaks up the sun’s rays during the day so that it can set your curves aglow at night! Designed by Despina Papadopoulos of Studio 5050, the Day-For-Night Solar Dress is all about catching some rays in style.

Custom-tailored with 448 white circuit board tiles that can be fitted with solar cells, LEDs, or photocells, the entire outfit is connected to an attached microcontroller. Besides adding some mod flavor to the dress, the black solar tiles also charge the batteries which power the device. A hidden control board communicates with the tiles, which are held together by metal rings for an avant-garde chainmail look. Solar chic!
