Grammy Winner Displays Tweets on her Dress

Imogen Heap – best known for the Shrek theme song when she when she was one half of Frou Frou – made headlines with her dress and purse that displayed her Twitter followers' tweets. During the awards, messages from fans tweeting @imogenheap scrolled across the collar of Imogen's dress. Not only that, but Heap was equipped with a TwitPic handbag that displayed pictures from fans on her handbag.

The singer explained she created the dress so that her fans could be part of the ceremony. “I just thought it’d be nice for them to come with me so I’ve got a live Twitter feed from them," she said, according to the Times.

The handbag contained an iPod touch running custom software and all messages were routed to Heap's collar and purse via a wireless router in the back of her dress.
