Audio-Activated Bra, (from <i>Wired Wear: Mediating Everyday Performances</i>)

Heidi Kumao

Mixed media: bra, 180 L.E.D.s, electronic circuit, two 9-volt batteries, and miniature microphone. Ninety LEDs are sewn into each side of a bra. A circuit similar to a VU meter on a stereo activates concentric circles of LEDs, lighting up the central area last. A microphone on the front of the bra senses the volume of the voice or audio signal. The louder the sound, the more lights are activated. Video:
