If you're considering wearing a Smart Skirt you may want to include a pair of Pixel Panties

The idea of wearable electronics surfaces now and then in various forms. The creators have differing notions as to the functionality or benefit of such a garment. Sometimes it's a LED light show synched to the surrounding beat. Other times it reacts to wifi or Bluetooth vitals. It's a growing field in terms of fashion, tech, and wearability. It's open to a lot of interpretation.

I read a few articles about SexyCyborg's Smart Skirt and was really enthused by her passion for tech and the unique application she's developing. An Android app connects to the skirt via Bluetooth for a variety of control options.

If you plan to hit the town with an illuminated smart skirt, you'd be wise to have a little protection from sudden updrafts that might expose more than just your electronics. We think a pair of Pixel Panties are the perfect solution.
