How easy is it to change styles with this new dress?

Answer: As easy as pressing a button.

You’ll never have to worry about someone else wearing the same outfit as you again. Adobe’s Project Primrose has created a dress that can literally change its look at the touch of a button.

Adobe Research Scientist Christine Dierk introduced the dress at the Adobe MAX 2023 conference in Los Angeles earlier this month. The smart material is composed of reflective light-diffusing modules, as well as embedded sensors that respond to movement. As Dierk moved around in the dress, it changed its color and pattern four different times in response to her movements.

Adobe said the technology could be incorporated into a range of different objects in addition to clothing, like handbags and furniture.
