Pseudomorph Dress Paints Itself Using Pneumatic Control Valves [Video]

While the world of fashion has different outlets, using technology to make things happen hasn’t gotten the attention that many designers would like. At least, not yet. But, when you start looking at the experimental fashion out there, especially from a Dutch designer by the name of Anouk Wipprecht, you’ve got to kind of wonder why it isn’t getting more attention.

The Pseudomorph Dress, which is part of the Pseudomorphs line-up, makes use of moving liquids to literally “paint” a dress, while it’s already being worn. Wipprecht uses a simple, white dress made from felt, and then a collection of electronic equipment (some of which is re-purposed medical supplies), and then puts it all together to work with the custom-made neck brace. He then connects a series of tubes to the neck brace, and then leads them down to the wearer’s back, where a pack will hold the color chosen to paint the individual dress.

You pump your color of choice into the pack, and then using some pneumatic valves, send the liquid from the back and into the tubes, where it will drip down through the tips, and out onto the dress. The idea is that every design will be different, as there is now pre-chosen pattern to have the colors follow. It’s a new idea, and one that hasn’t been done before, apparently, so we’ll have to see if the idea actually leads to something. Check out the video below to see it in action.
