After centuries of wondering, men can finally work out if their partner really is 'fine' or not thanks to a new dress that changes colour depending on a woman's mood.
The Bubelle Dress is made up of two layers, the inner layer contains biometric sensors that pick up a person's emotions and projects them in colours onto the second layer, the outer textile. Scroll down for more...
The Bubelle dress changes colour depending on your mood
The sensitive dress, which was designed by electronical giants Philips, works by monitoring physical changes associated with different feelings.
Emotions such as stress, arousal, or fear generate light that then changes pattern and colour based on its intensity. Should the prototype hit the high street it would help British couples to communicate better.
It was developed as part of the SKIN Probe Project, a research programme concerned with what lifestyles might be like in 2020. Time magazine named the imperessive clothing as the best fashion invention of the year.
Philips' 'body architect' Lucy McRae said: "A garment can be a highly complex interactive electronic or biochemical device that is more responsive to subtle triggers like sensuality, affection and sensation."
Scientists at the Dutch firm are now working on electronic tattoos which could also change design based on mood.
A spokeswoman added: "In much the same way as make-up is put on and taken off to suit the occasion, a tattoo could alter whenever desired. "The tattoos could even change in response to gestures or emotions."
