Have you ever wondered if someone is staring at you or whether you’re just imagining it? The technology sewn into these dresses by designer Ying Gao will reveal the truth. The outfits move and light up when someone gazes upon them. The trick is eye-tracking technology that responds by moving tiny motors to make the dress move. The result is eerie, luminescent pieces of clothing that look like elegant jellyfish.
Gao made the apparel for an installation called “(No)where (Now)here: Two Gaze-activated Dresses,” and it will appear at the Shanghai Museum of Contemporary Art later this year.
