What is Lux?

Blurring the lines between fashion and technology, Lux combines concepts in electrical engineering and computer science with modern trends and glamorous fashion. Lux integrates electronics and light in a natural, unobtrusive way, as opposed to the more gaudy, avant-garde style of most current wearable technology.

Clothing is an essential part of personal expression, and while we think about what we want to wear each day, we rarely think about how we want to wear it. The clothing in Lux senses every motion, confronting us with our own actions by exaggerating them with LEDs that reflect even our smallest gestures. Other pieces in the line can interact with one another, changing when wearers touch hands or embrace.

What Have You Done So Far?

Below, you can see some pictures of our first piece (sans lights):

In the final version of this piece, the floral fabric bunches will be ringed by small white LED's which will accentuate the flowers.

Over the next month, we'll be producing the majority of the pieces in the line.  The programming is already finished for the motion sensing leggings and for the dress above.

What are the Other Pieces in Lux like?

You can see more sketches and descriptions on our online lookbook.

What Will You Be Using the Funds For?

We'll be using the funds to buy high-end fabrics as well as electronics.  While we've set our fundraising goal at $1600, we estimate it'll cost more than 2000 to produce the line, not mention that we would be paying for the rewards out of pocket.
