The amazing Technicolor LED fur coat

This isn’t the first LED fur coat we have seen, but it may be the first one made entirely from scratch? The maker, DustMonkey, couldn’t find a coat that met all his criteria, so he started with McCall’s pattern #4222. After making the coat, he attached 256 RGB LEDs, an Arduino, and custom LED controller to light everything up.

It had to meet a few design restrictions:

  • Be completed in 3 months
  • Programmable
  • Battery powered
  • Durable (I was taking it to Burning Man)
  • Affordable (I probably missed this mark)
