This shirt is ready for musical adventure. With its different colors and patterns, Lucas Morgan has created a masterpiece for festival wear using Arduino. This is his final video of the shirt, but other videos on YouTube show the learning curve he faced in creating it. For instance, rather than stitching the EL wire, he ended up using a strong fabric glue. Battery packs were made from unused inverters, and he sandwiched them so they would be mobile.
According to Lucas, future plans for this shirt include creating a 3D printed case to hold everything compactly. Then, he’ll be showing off his maker magic at festivals like Wakarusa, Bonnaroo, EDC Vegas and Electric Forest. So, get ready to snap some pics, or better yet, make your own EL Wire creation. We’ve got a great EL Wire Starter Pack and a TRON Hoodie tutorial ready to go.
