The sari (or saree) might be the traditional garment of India and elsewhere but that doesn’t mean it’s not ready to go high tech. One sari salesman has smoothly sewn speakers in his silk saris so the saris sing sweet songs as it slowly sashays down the street. P. Mohan, a designer from Dharmavaram town, creates the garments with 8 microspeakers embedded into the fabric and a 2GB mp3 player to play music.
The sari, dubbed the “Swaramadhuri”, can play music for up to 4 hours at a time. It took nearly a month for the ten member team to create the singing saree.
