Benhaz Farahi continues to experient at the intersection of technology and fashion, this time with Bodyscape, a sculpted form that's underlit with LEDs. As the wearer moves, the lights shift around the garment.
Bodyscape is an interactive 3D printed fashion item inspired by the behavior of the human body. Its design is based on the Langer lines of the human skin – lines of least tension that are used by surgeons in operations. As the user moves and gyrates her body it also lights up with LED lighting controlled by a gyroscope that tracks her movements. Bodyscape is not only a technologically advanced fashion item produced using the latest 3D printing technology, but it also raises fashion to a new level, as the poetic dance of light and human movement.
Bonus video: Caress of the Gaze, a piece that changes shape by tracking the eye movements of a person looking at the wearer.

With all the revolutionary tech that’s out there, it’s pretty sad that finding a simple stud in your wall can feel like dowsing for water. This can be equally true whether you’re using a magnetic finder and it’s reliance on “feel,” or an electronic unit that can give fuzzy readings (especially when the batteries are […]
Do you have any Star Wars fans on your list? Given the reach and output of its new corporate masters these days, it might be easier to ask if there’s anyone out there who isn’t a Star Wars fan. So let’s narrow it down further: Do you know a Star Wars fan who likes to […]
