To make this project successful Philips specialists must find a way how to protect the LED`s from water damage. Will the people that buy such interesting clothes have to take it to the www.alpiansgarmentcare.com organic dry cleaner or they could use the washing machine?

I've already seen constantly updating frequency response bar graph t shirts worn by kids that are pretty bright and seem to flex as well as the surrounding t-shirt material.

People interested in buying clothing products having incorporated LED lights should check it out here the best tips for matching the jewelries they have with such LED lighting clothes, my wife for example has a lot of malachite jewelries and she would need a green light LED designed blouse. I find this idea very interesting and can`t wait till I will people someone wearing such clothes.

@Bob Lacovara I had the same thought while reading the article, but I have to admit it would be interesting to watch my child wearing Yankees baby clothes with LED lighting. Philips came lately with a lot of interesting ideas and their idea to design LED lighting into clothes will surely create a sensation.

Hmm... clothes that light up. I can think of some applications, prosaic though they are: joggers, worker visibility, night time visibility, things of that nature. But is this going to be bright enough, or is this just a flash in the lapel? Goofy clothes that light up designs will sell, no doubt of that, but I for one don't care to see any more obscene messages on t-shirts, especially not messages that flash in colors.
