Fiber Optic Fabric Light Display

Fiber Optic Fabric Light Display Not only have you got fiber optics weaved together to form a fabric mesh, these lights also respond to feeds coming in from Twitter and other sources. The fiber optics are connected to RGB LED lights that are controlled by an Arduino microcontroller that changes the colors and patterns.

50 Different Minds runs two computer programs that listen to Twitter tweets and follow flight arrivals and departures at the 9 busiest airports in the world. The animated effect looks like illuminated silk.” – 50 Different Minds

Lights & Sports: LED Snowboarding Suit

Snowboard LED Light Suit

We have featured lights incorporated into sports before (surfing, skateboards, foosball table). This time we have William Hughes wearing a full body LED snowboarding suit. The LED suit acts as a massive torchlight, for when William goes down the French slopes in pitch black night. There is an amazing, and surreal, video (below) capturing William’s run down the hill in the LED suit.

“I was really drawn to the idea of a lone character made of light surfing through darkness,” – Jacob Sutton – Fashion Photographer and Film Maker
