New Phone Dress??
Dress doubles up as a phone
Basically this is meant to solve all the problems for women on a night out. They won't need anymore hand bags or at least there'll be more room in the bag for other shite. However from the Article below you'll see they haven't said the price and they don't mention how the hell you're gonna charge the bloody thing :)
A little black dress that doubles up as a functioning mobile phone is to be launched in Britain.
The M-Dress allows wearers to make and receive calls by slipping their sim card under the labe.
Gesture recognition software allows users to pick up a call by raising their hand to their ear and end a conversation by letting it fall to their side.
The M-Dress, designed by the London-based fashion company CuteCircuit, rings when an incoming call is received and different ringtones can be assigned to different numbers.
But the garment can only call a limited number of pre-programmed numbers.
The dress is described as an "elegant silk jersey dress that is also a functional soft electronics mobile phone" and will be released in 2011. Its price remains undisclosed.
The "super-tiny" antenna is stitched into the bottom hem of the knee-length dress.
The CuteCircuit website says: "The M-Dress was designed after our research showed that very often phone calls are missed because mobile phones are quite awkward to carry, especially for women, that have garments with small or no pockets."
