Moritz Waldemeyer's "Heartbeat"

People have been experimenting for some time with wearable pixels. For instance, Moritz Waldemeyer in the UK has become well-known in digital fashion; he also has an interesting blog. Another example of his work is in the video below that goes back several years.

Vega Wang in China experimented with electroluminescence in clothing.

There was even a ‘wearable’ version of the arduino controller called the lilypad that was available in the past for experimentation with wearable electronics.  On the whole, though, it seems this field of digital light is in a holding pattern. Problems that need to be solved are power, weight, resolution, wiring, bulk, to name a few. Maybe a reflective technology based on ePaper (eCloth?) will be part of the solution. Someday. Until then, Pixels On Us may have to wait.
