The Masai Dress is an older project developed at Studio 5050 but since I just discovered the video (above) I thought it was worth a post.

The garment uses traces of conductive thread and metallic beads to trigger the playback of sound.

I appreciate this project's low tech approach. Rather than using an accelerometer to detect motion, the Masai Dress uses "motion sensors" developed from beads and conductive thread.

I'm currently really into the combination of anthropology and new media. This project is a great example of this. Also the beads are gorgeous.
