Mimic

Amped Atelier: Sahrye Cohen and Hal Rodriguez

Mimic is a chameleon dress that changes colors based on the surrounding environment.

Technical Information

Mimic use color sensors to measure object colors and then animate color changes using the addressable LEDs on the 3D printed motifs. The model controls how the dress looks through color swatches.

The plastic crystals were printed directly onto fabric using a 3D printer.  This innovative method creates a durable and flexible garment that is accessible and customizable.

Mimic features:

  • 3D motifs (tetrahedrons and crystals) printed directly on fabric
  • Addressable LEDs with RGB light sensor controlled by an Arduino
