The world can be a dark and lonely place(half of the time.) Sure, daylight may keep us reading outside from dawn to dusk. After dusk, however, is when the freaks come out. We need extra lighting on our person to either combat these freaks or, better yet, join forces with them in utter freak nasty awesomeness. Luckily, wearable technology has long been interested in making our favorite frocks light up like a Christmas tree. Today, we have yet another accessory designed to transform our humble everyday clothing into clothes so bright, that they gotta wear shades.
Introducing Electric Feel Lighting components. These handy and dandy doodads are essentially LED snakes that we can affix to our clothing, our personal belongings or, heck, even our dogs(don’t actually do that last one.) These wires are essentially constructed from electroluminescent coils, but that’s not the only kind of light they transmit. Each cable also comes equipped withÂ up to eight channels of EL Wire and two channels of RGB LED strips. They are designed to be fully programmable, so you can change color and patterns with ease. You’ll be the belle of the ball when you are wearing these babies to your, uh, next ball.
Now the bad, dark news. The Electric Feel system is not available on store shelves, be they at costume shops or otherwise. You’ll have to contribute to their Kickstarter account in order to make your bright, lit up dreams a reality. There are a variety of options available on the site, ranging from as low as $25 to as mightily high as $200(And more, really.)
