The Pseudomorph dress is the brainchild of Dutch fashionista (damn yeah I use words like that!) Anouk Wipprecht. As the dress is worn, it colors itself with dripping ink. How exactly does it work? Well let me
tell you copy/paste something. *ahem*
Today was a sad night. I rearranged all my bath salts on the side of the tub and then made a microwavable burrito. Even though I turned it every 30-seconds, it still came out frozen in the middle. I think I chipped a tooth. Then, when I out having my nightly cry on the balcony, I saw a bird get hit by a car.
Woops, that was my diary. Oooh -- here we go:
[Wipprecht] came up with a unique way to keep women fashion forward by creating a system of pneumatic control valves within a neck-piece that pump ink designs into absorbent dress material. The electronic circuits fitted on the back of the neck-piece are powered by a single 9 Volt battery.
Anybody else find it a little too coincidental that the designer's name is Wipprecht, which -- now hear me out -- is eerily similar to Rorschach, maker of the famous inkblot tests? No? Not really that similar? But both of their things use ink! I'M DRAWING SOME SERIOUS PARALLELS OVER HERE! "Jesus, stop wake-and-baking, GW." Oh now you're just being mean. Also, that dress looks straight out of a Maxi-Pad commercial.
