Whattt!! NOW YOU CAN WEAR YOUR TWITTER ACCOUNT

The Museum of Fine Arts commissioned a version of the “Twitter dress” from the London-based CuteCircuit. Visitors can send tweets from their phones, or artworks from the museum’s collection (selected on an iPad attached to the display) that will then appear across the 10,000 micro-LEDs in the dress’s fabric (and it’s machine-washable).

Also on view is a dress by Pauline van Dongen that is embedded with solar panels that can charge a cellphone after two hours in the sun. A top-and-shorts ensemble by Ying Gao is covered in dressmaker pins that move in a shimmering, undulating fashion when voice-activated.
