This suit is the work of San Francisco-based maker Tom Sepe who created the incredible wearable for “the original ping pong social club” SPiN in San Francisco. Video embeds of it in action below.
It’s complete and delivered! woot! Here is the Light-Up Ping Pong Ball Suit I just built for SPiN in SF.
850 individually addressable RGB LEDs, controlled via WiFi, and powered by lithium ion batteries.
Stephanie Haber rang me up, thanks to Shawn Cunningham and asked me to make a cool thing… so I’ve been working my ass off getting this thing done in a little over 2 weeks!
Couldn’t have done it without some excellent support:
Christopher Schardt for his amazing software, LEDlab and for his tech support.
Dallas Swindle for tons of hands-on help, a warm space to work and great technical expertise.
Aaron Lyon for excellent sewing skills
Clifford Florio for last minute ping pong ball attachment prowess
Jon Sarriugarte for having just the right tools at just the right moment
Phil ‘Peef’ Sadow for electrical wizardry
And huge hugs to Megan Murray Jones for all her support.
