What is this? These are modular hand-made very flexible Red-Green-Blue LED display panels, 16×16 each. Every piece is hand-wired and hand-soldered together, even the control circuitry! You can wear one on your chest and/or back for a dynamic shirt or top to display your mood. A pillow for a fun couch… Put several together and have a full-body LED suit! Anything, really!
When viewed by the naked eye, the tri-color LED panels appear to shift color depending on which angle you are viewing me. I do wear a thin white shirt over it at times to diffuse the colors making them more discernible, however the color shift effect goes away when this is done. I carry with me pairs of Diffraction Grating glasses (a.k.a. Firework Glasses, Rainbow Glasses, Laser Glasses, X-Ray Glasses) to enhance the sober’s viewing experience. The panels are even capable of displaying multicolored animations/images and text, allowing me a wide range of bedazzlements!
