This Amazing Tech Purse Will Make You Stand out Everywhere #WearableWednesday #wearabletech @CATClutch

CAT Clutch

As I was scrolling through Instagram I came across @thecatclutch showing a pic of a model from a runway event with an LED purse. I thought the clutch looked familiar, and then I remembered that it had been on Kickstarter. Well, it appears things have gone well for Creative Arts and Technology (CAT) as they have already launched 100 of their LED blinged purses in the wild. Now they are working on their next batch of special edition “Black Sparkle” purses for February.

The purse is ready for action, whether it be lighting up your fave team’s name at a football game or matching the stripes of your dress. You can program it using the CAT app to display text messages and GIF animations, but it also comes with its own selection of pre-loaded pixel art created by artists. The 16×32 LED matrix will supposedly last about 10-12 hours before a recharge is needed. As for function, it has a USB port for your phone as well as a handy mirror for make-up. So, if you want a purse that can make rainbows, this is for you. Of course, if you want to try to DIY your own purse that makes rainbows, check out our learning guide for an RGB LED Matrix. What design would you put on a purse?
