The little black dress with a built in mobile phone

Ok ladies fashion week is almost here and you need gadgets! So why not
combine two of your favorite things together into one. The cell phone
and the LBD.

The M-dress by CuteCircuit is a little black number that has a mobile
phone built into it. The wearer answers the dress by lifting their arm
to their head as if they were holding one of those passé mobile phone
handsets and disconnects once they lower their hand.


Here more from Gizmag:

Francesca Rosella told The that she designed the dress along
with fellow CuteCircuit co-founder, Ryan Genz, because she was sick of
rummaging through her purse searching for her phone and not reaching
it before it rang out. Obviously the M-dress isn’t going to be
suitable attire for all occasions but Rosella says it’s intended for
special evenings when you don’t want to be weighed down by your usual

A SIM-card is placed in a slot underneath the dress’ label, while the
phone’s antenna is located in the hem. Before guys go getting excited
at the prospect of dialing a number by prodding various parts of the
wearer’s anatomy, the M-dress doesn’t actually have a keypad and can
only be programmed to call one number – which is presumably done by
striking a particular pose. There’s also no display so you won’t be
able to screen your calls. Rosella points out that simply scratching
your head won’t trigger the phone unless someone is calling at the
same moment.

And the M-dress is no crazy concept or pipedream. CuteCircuit plans to
sell it through Selfridges department store in London from next year.
