Question are your shirts electric?

about 2 or 3 years ago phillips invented a process whereby LED's are woven into the material. its called "Lumalive" and apparently one can change the color and design of the shirt without taking it off your back--well, maybe briefly off. you could change the color to harmonize with your mood. i imagine the cost would be high, at least in the early stages. perhaps it heralds the time when on a flight, before take off, the pilot will announce "please turn your shirts off now".
well, 2 years down the track has anyone ever used it? is/was the price prohibitive? did it die a natural? will it spell the end of screenprinting like lighters did to matches? anyone?
graeme death is a grave mistake
