Beautiful Dress Made Out Of 24,000 LEDs

Illustration for article titled Beautiful Dress Made Out Of 24,000 LEDs

24,000 full-color, super-thin LEDs, 4,000 Swarovski crystals, and enough iPod batteries to keep everything glowing for about an hour. This picture doesn't do the Galaxy Dress justice, but the video comes close.

This gorgeous thing was designed by Francesca Rosella and Ryan Genz and they say that it's the "the largest wearable display in the world." I don't know if that's true or not, but I do know that I wanted to cry when I read that the dress went straight from the sewing room to the museum mannequin, without ever being worn by a real woman.

When you just absolutely have to have a a dress that screams, "Look at me, look at me! Look at me, I'm blinking, look at me!! Are you looking at me? Look at me, look at me, look at me, I'm changing colors! Look at me, look at me!" for your attention whoring needs, get the Galaxy Dress.

I'm not a fan of the cut or the display pattern, either. I suppose someone has to do it first before someone can do it right, but it'd be interesting to see something like this done tastefully. #galaxyleddress
