“See-thru-me” Light Shirt

See-thru-me is a project by Meg Grant that uses LEDs and light sensitive resistors to give the effect of light being passed through the body. When a light is shined on the wearer’s back, the LEDs on the front light up in the corresponding place. It seems to me based on the pictures that there aren’t any microcontrollers being used in this project, just each photoresistor controlling one LED. [via Fashioning Technology]

    Would a little cooler if it worked on both sides. Then it could have more practicle apss.

    you’re right, becky, no microcontrollers, just 36 separate circuits (sharing batteries) as you describe. and yes, once the batteries are removed, it is completely washable. thanks for blogging my project! :)
