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."

I preferred the video clips to the music, just quietly, but I love the dress!

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.

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.

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:

I don't mind the side ones, but I like the symmetrical two sided blade look.
