This Starry LED Scarf Will Light Up The Universe Around You #WearableWednesday
The holidays may be over – but its never to late to enjoy some great STEM inspired fashion! Via Bored Panda!
There’s less than a week before Christmas, but we bet there’s plenty of you out there who still haven’t done their Christmas shopping. Stuck wondering what to buy for your brother, sister, friend or partner? How about one of these awesome LED Illumiscarves! It’ll keep them super warm this winter, but that’s not all. The scarf contains a star atlas print that reveals the constellation when it lights up in the dark! Each scarf is 72 inches long and comes with two small removable batteries that can power the LEDs for hours. The lights don’t create any heat, but if the fleece material doesn’t keep them warm then we’re sure they’ll be glowing from all of the attention they receive.
