Only In Japan: Light-Up LED Teeth

Posted by | January 24, 2011 | Only In Japan | No Comments

What is the newest fashion trend in Japan? LED teeth attachments… What do they do? They glow when you smile, change colors, and make an electric “buzz” when they light up. It’s a party in your mouth! See them in action after the break.

The new fashion accessories were originally created as an experiment by two Japanese designers and are now being used in a commercial advertising a winter sale at a Japanese clothing store, Laforet Harajuku. They are quickly becoming a sought after accessory.
The LED smiles can easily be affixed to your teeth and glow different colors while you smile. The colors can be changed wirelessly through a computer interface.

Mr. Ishibashi and Daito Manabe, the other designer and technologist on the project, are offering workshops in Japan showing people how to build their own LED smiles.
