Gamergirls features two identical, sleek, feminine dresses where the wearers are able to compete in a video game played out on the opposing person’s garment. Each garment is overlaid with a detailed track pattern mimicking the familiar arcade style gaming displays. The game is controlled using a Bluetooth LE wireless phone app, incorporated as an accessory. More here.
