The first thing that comes to mind is "boom box".
Whether that is a good thing or a bad thing is a matter of personal interpretation, but for designer Teresa Almeida, it appears that a boom box is a good thing. What is interesting about this dress is the fact that it doesn't actually play music.
No iPod dock here. The whole point of this dress is to use the bag and belt mounted speakers in unison with a sensor to create audio that brings attention to the person wearing it. The sound that is emitted would be based on the environment and proximity of other people. Personally, we would rather see someone walking down the street with a boom box on their shoulder than wearing this dress.
