Oh you're going to be Honey Boo Boo this weekend? That's cool. Beijing-based designer Vega Wang is going to be the UNIVERSE. Or at least she designed a line of clothing that interprets space with some ultra-techy innovations.

The fabric she uses is called electroluminescent and it has an animate blue glow on which Vega prints her designs, so what you get is an eerily real looking nebulae that's dynamic and glowing. Check it out in action plus learn how she did it in the video, which was produced for Vice & Intel's The Creators Project.
