Psychedelic LED Fur Coat

Janet Hansen made an amazing psychedelic fur coat with animated LEDs.


This mesmerizing coat is made with 1,000 individual addressable LEDs (picture Edna Mode using her “No Capes” voice to say “No Strips!”) and whit shaggy fur that is not only fashionable, but acts as a diffuser.  The individual LED pixels are joined together by flexible wires with spacing of about 2″.  Janet doesn’t like to use strips on flexible surfaces because as she puts it,  she prefer to never do repairs

The LEDs are controlled by a Teensy using custom hardware and software. The control switches are mounted behind the collar, and multiple battery packs are stored in pockets in the lining, in the back of the coat.
