Day-for-Night, Modular Solar Dress

Day-for-Night is a modular, reconfigurable dress comprised of 448 white circuit boards (although the number changes as the dress can get longer or shorter). Each tile is designed in such a way as to accommodate a solar cell, a RGB LED, or a photocell, and jumper connectors (in the form of 0 Ohm resistors). A control board provides power, communicates with the tiles, and links to a computer via RF. The dress is completely modular both in terms of software and hardware.

A USB board provides virtual serial port to Windows, Macs and Linux while an on board microcontroller relays data to and from the dress via a 2.4 GHz RF link. This allows for programmability (and status monitoring) from the computer side in the form of simple commands and responses via the virtual serial port. Currently a Max program has been developed that provides a graphical user interface for programming the tiles, while a Flash and Java program are part of future developments.
