A burka that has bright lights and video cameras inside it feeding directly to lightweight LED screens on the outside.

       I see no problems with this idea whatsoever, and I stand fullsquare behind you in bringing this to fruition.

       Would it not be simpler to make it out of clear pvc sheeting?
pocmloc, Oct 19 2010

       I see a lot of red tape this idea sidesteps that clear sheeting would not.

       In the same legalistic spirit as a sheitel.

       //I see a lot of red tape this idea sidesteps//   

       Less red tape, perhaps. But, the equipment required for this idea deserves a comment. "Bright lights and video cameras...LED screens on the outside." A rather cumbersome form of exhibitionism (can't think of any other reason a woman would wear this), I should think. While the view on the video screens may or may not appeal to some (11-to-1 vote FOR, at this writing), the whole view (woman-with-apparatus), doesn't do much for me. Sounds like a walking-peep-show-tent. I'm changing my vote. [ ]

       I wonder if this would cause riots too?

       The peek-a-boo burka? Peek-a-burka?   

       I'll run it by marketing.

       So, this is why the French want to ban the burkha?

       All the electronics make it too simple. Do it with mirrors, periscope-style.

       Nice idea, [Voice}.   

       Question - in the unlikely event of any of your remains being found, do you want internment or cremation ?

       [doc]//I'll run it by marketing.//   

       In its present version, I think you'll have to drag or tow it by marketing. Sounds too cumbersome to run.

       This beats pasting mirrors to your shoes. Bun [+]

       The wearer of the burka is not necessarily nude underneath. This could just be a way to display street clothes where not otherwise permitted.

       Buzz kill.

       If you're feeling adventurous, you could broadcast someone else's body instead of your own.

       Or, if you are a particularly ugly Moslem man, pictures of your own body. That would attract some attention.
infidel, Oct 21 2010

       //you could broadcast someone else's body instead of your own// If you broadcast your own body, but back-to-front, and if there were several of you, some very odd-looking dancing would thereby be facilitated.   

       For example, consider the cha-cha-cha.
pertinax, Oct 21 2010

       I live in an area with a large Muslim population. There's a certain variety of figure hugging lycra-infused burqua popular amongst the younger set, that although adhering to the letter of sharia law, leaves remarkably little to the imagination. I thoroughly endorse this, of course.
