Breath-monitoring dress


I’m curious what kind of sensor they’re using to make this breath-monitoring dress with dimming/brightening LEDs under the top layer of fabric.

    Given that the LED brightness is dependent of depth of breathing and that’s a fitted dress, I’m going to guess some kind of strain gauge which measures chest expansion and adjusts the voltage/current (whichever one dims LEDs) accordingly.
