Phi : Illuminated Design  - GAMERGIRLS

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. This pattern houses over 400 individually addressable RGB LED lights. With this "Gamification" project the wearers compete to reach objectives in the game, getting visual feedback from each other’s dresses as objectives are reached. Special visuals will be displayed when the final objective is obtained, immediately notifying the other participant that they have lost. The game is controlled using a Bluetooth LE wireless phone app, incorporated as an accessory.
