Katy Perry shows off LED dress Answered

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?

Katy Perry rocks a CuteCircuit (‘wearable technology’) LED dress


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

 I don't think you can rate comments... But this gets 5*

 Thank you.  I'll be here all week.  Try the waitress.  Tip your veal.

she would be a walking light show at a rave...

 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....

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.

 they should totally do this to Aurora's dress in Disney, PINK BLUE PINK BLUE lol
