Vital Threads Biofeedback Apparel is a collection of clothing and accessories that measures and displays the wearer's biological signals to open fashion to dynamic new forms of self awareness, personal expression and interpersonal communication.

The collection includes three works:
Heart-felt Shirt/Dress - Lights up with the wearer's heart beat.
Truth Wristband - Displays emotional arousal.
Thinking Cap - Displays brain activity.

Vital Threads has been installed as wearable biofeedback art in a number galleries, museums, conferences and hackerspaces around the world. For more information about about the work, see my Vital Threads Biofeedback Apparel page.
