Description
"An eye-catching dress that’s part art project, part cutting-edge tech, was presented today at the Ars Electronica Festival in Linz, Austria. The dress showcases an ultra-low energy, high resolution, brain-computer interface that’s so sensitive that if the wearer thinks about moving a single finger, it can identify which one—without the need for an implant."
