Communication dress

New York based Alis Cambol, an interaction designer / design analyst who focuses on researching and designing experiences for product, fashion, environments and digital platforms, has created the Lizard dress (see you tube video below). This interactive garment mimics movements made by an external source (person wearing the corresponding transmitter).

What can this type of technology do to enable remote communication through clothing between two people?

Cool! I played with these kinds of sensors at a "bodyhack" workshop at TEI a few weeks back. They are totally awesome and not that hard to use! If you put them on your face you can track your eyeball movements...crazy stuff.
