Amanda Parkes’ dress will get a woman a ton of unwanted attention from geeks and nerds. That’s because it generates power when the wearer moves, using kinetic energy as a result of natural movements of the human body. Piezoelectric material around the joint areas, like the elbows and hips of the garment generate power in response to the mechanical stress. Electricity will be stored as voltage in a tiny centralized battery.
As far as style, it leaves something to be desired. Unless you’re auditioning for the latest Star Trek maybe. If an alien abducted you, I’m not sure if they would be impressed by this garment or just end our misery with a giant death ray.
