The Galaxy Dress is composed of 24,000 LEDs, each measuring two by two millimeters, attached to four layers of chiffon and forty layers of crinoline. The whole thing can be powered by a few iPod batteries for up to an hour. It's one of the recent creations of CuteCircuit, a design firm specializing in "wearable technology." The dress is now on permanent display at the Museum of Science and Industry in Chicago. More pictures at the link.
