The design, produced in 2009 for the Maker Faire, combines plastic tubing, dyed liquid, a microcontroller and some impressive knitting skills to make the blueprint for the next generation of Lady Gaga or Björk outfits. But we're a little concerned: if the batteries run out, will it leave you see-through on the runway?
