New futuristic clothing has recently been developed with vivid lights that flash on music beats. A collection of electrogarments designed by Eric Beaudette '16, fiber science; Lina Sanchez Botero, graduate student in the field of fiber science; and Neal Reynolds, graduate student in the field of physics will be presented at the Cornell Fashion Collective. Beaudette said that the collection was inspired by the future and present of wearable technology being more and more integrated into fashion and daily life.

The clothes shimmer with optical fiber cloth illuminated by controllable RGB LEDs (red-green-blue light-emitting diodes) and strips of electroluminescent tape. The lights react to the beat of the music because of an Arduino microcontroller integrated into each garment. The designer team explained that a big challenge was maintaining harmony between the materials, technologies and construction.
