Mechapolypse: A Mind-controlled Shape-Shifting Dress

And now for something completely different... a Masters student at the London College of Fashion has come up with a mind-controlled dress that illuminates and changes form in accordance to the concentration level of the wearer. You can see this dress in motion in the following video:

The creator doesn't give too much away, however there's an Arduino-style board in there somewhere with an EEG (electroencephalographic) chip with sensors in the cap - so it can measure the wearer's concentration and assign various behaviors to the dress. Amazing.

To get started with such an embedded project, you could use a Freetronics LeoStick - one of the smallest Arduino-compatible boards on the market today:
