Dog Gets Amazing Technicolor LED Raincoat #WearableWednesday
Gladys Delgado-Garced of DogGoneCouture is creating some of the best examples of wearable tech for dogs, and this raincoat is no exception. BlinkyTape LED strips have been inserted into clear vinyl pockets to form little matrices. The BlinkyTape allows you to generate interesting color patterns using easy-to-use software, so she had colors mingling in no time for her dog, Pierre. Check out the software at work!
One of the nice things about BlinkyTape is that it is beginner friendly — you don’t need to have a microcontroller or programming skills to get amazing light patterns. That means your dog can look as cute as little Pierre in no time. You want it, right? Get your BlinkyTape here!
