Create an app to run synchronously on the 80+ phones that powered this unusual fashion item. Create a control system to allow the client to remotely play video, images and interactive content streamed in real-time to the dress.
Custom playback software and remote control app
We created a custom Windows Phone app which was installed on 80 Nokia Lumia phones. These phones were attached to the skirt frame with 3D-printed clips.
The software we created enabled us to display an image stream across the displays of the 80 phones, effectively creating one big video screen. Our software allowed the client to display images, play videos, a live feed from a phone camera, and display dynamic content. These images were influenced by the position and rotation of the model wearing the dress, creating an unusual visual shimmering effect.
