Lumitop: illuminated clothing lights up the night

Fiber optics are, well, fiber. Makes sense to weave those fibers into haute couture fashion clothing. Not exactly designed for shrinking violets, the Lumitop clothing line will make a statement on any dancefloor or red carpet. Check out the gallery below for more samples of this latest stab at tech fashion. There's even something for the guys… well, only if your name is "Gunther." You have to wonder where the battery pack goes.

Surprisingly, the clothing can be washed — just remove the batteries. Different colored LEDs are used to change the colors, and yes, there's an on/off switch.

Just imagine how this look could improve a drab traffic safety vest. Men at work, getting their groove on…
