This 3D printed dress with embedded screens fosters a tech-mediated connection between the wearer and their surroundings. It's driven by the wearer's subconscious brain signals, captured by an advanced EEG sensor called 'Unicorn Headband' in collaboration with g.tec that forms a wearable brain-computer interface. Machine learning gauges the wearer's mental workload and visualizes it on six circular displays on the dress's neckpiece. As the workload intensifies, the displays simulate dilating eyes, creating an otherworldly effect.
