(CCA) | Gamergirls
Created in collaboration with Kenzie Housego, Sophie Amin, and Stacey Morgan (AKA Phi : Illuminated) Gamergirls features two identical, sleek, feminine dresses where the wearers are able to compete in a retro-style video game played out on the opposing person’s garment. Connected via bluetooth, each garment 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.
