Katy Perry shows off LED dress

Illuminated clothing has popped up several times here on Instructables. There's the turn signal jacket, EL wire, and Fire Skirt just to name a few. Now the lit up look is getting even more attention with Katy Perry sporting an LED-lit dress made by CuteCircuit. I wonder who will turn up in some bright outfit next?

The designer was heard to remark, "I lit a girl and I liked it."

 Damnit, and I had just gotten over her!!
>sighs and cranks up Waking up in Vegas
I preferred the video clips to the music, just quietly, but I love the dress!
 Seen her modeling that shank? That is enough to make me melt....
Nope, and I can't find it...
I'd like to make my own switch-blade, not to use, but more as a "Look what I got in my bedroom!" kinda  thing.
 Heck I just bought one, 20 bucks. Cheap chinese stuff, but hey when i have a hundred bucks lying around to shell out for a real one i will.
Nice. I really ought to Google something about them, I know absolutely nothing! Are both sides of the blade sharpened?
 nah, most switchblades are single edge. But i have PLENTY of double edgers
The stilletto switchblades look quite nice...
 Yeah, as slick as many OTF's and stuff are, there be something about a good ol' Italian stiletto switchblade that oozes an aura of awesomeness...
Remind me to check out Google patents to see if I can find it...
 For a schematic? I doubt there would be any patents out for the basic design, there are a ton of kits available.
I think I'll buy a switch blade comb & take it apart to see how it works.
 I dunno ifi the comb would show off the locking mechanisms correctly
Good point, but at least it will give a rough idea.

So far I've only found diagrams of side opening one sided switchblades. D:
 side opening switches are classic man! Try searching for Out THe Front, might ind  what you are after.
I don't mind the side ones, but I like the symmetrical two sided blade look.
