An infinitely interchangeable (eternal integration) programmable devices for clothing used in dance/music performance groups to gain an edge in an already overstated market of those in South Korea. Secondary market includes high-end fashion desires for something extremely unique and not off-shelf.
When multiplied, these wearables give the ability to transform a piece of clothing into any color, any pattern, any motion graphic and varied shapes.
How it operates:
The shells as they are called are non traditional geometric shapes 3D printed light-weight attachable wearables via snaps unto ones clothing. The bottom is made of ninja-flex to conform to the users body and movement. 4 micro screws hold the base to the top. And finally a special textile is used to diffuse lighting.
Encased within the shell is a micro-processor, 6-axis motion detection, bluetooth LE, LiPo battery, 3 multi colored LEDs & an inductive charger.
The 6-axis allows the wearier to program the dress to change color based on body orientation as one would do in ballet for example.
The BtLE acts as a node for each shell's micro-processor. Given each is a self contained unit, should one fail, the others can account for this and continue to operate as normal. The removal of wires also means the clothing's shape can be changed on-demand.
The three 3 multi colored LEDs can become any 1 of 256 colors. With the addition of 3 LEDs vs 1, they can do color and blending within each shell to spectacular visual effects. Additionally should 1 fail, 2 remain working. If all 3 fail, the BtLE signals the other nodes to makeup for this fault.

The inductive charger built within means you never need plug in a cord to charge the unit. Simply set the shell on the included charging base and it will recharge itself wirelessly. This also means no need to fiddle with the textiles. A single charge gives hours of usage.
