[Louise Katzovitz] has created a gentle-up jacket in the model of the jacket worn by Michael Jackson in the 1983 songs video clip for “Thriller”. [Louise Katzovitz]’s Thriller jacket is the best instance of combining stitching hacks and digital hacks to make an brilliant, wearable jacket.
A bomber jacket was utilised as the base sort to layer on the sequins and LED strips. Alternatively of bands of metallic studs, [Louise] used WS2812B 60 pixels/m LED strips. 3D-printed clear PLA “gems” have been positioned on leading of the LEDs to mimic the form of the steel studs in the first jacket and deliver diffusion for the underlying LEDs.
Every single LED strip was laid out on a piece of vinyl strip. Then, a top layer of vinyl was cut to allow each and every of the LEDs to poke as a result of, with the 3D printed gems tremendous-glued on best. The assembled LED bands are attached to the jacket by Velcro with the wiring fed at the rear of the lining substance, which can be taken off quickly by way of little hooks. The whole detail is pushed by an Arduino Nano and a 5 V ability bank.
With the facts and procedure worked out, [Louise] even produced a little model of the jacket for her doggy. We have showcased LED wearables and fashion in advance of and [Louise]’s jacket is a terrific addition. These projects are best for everyone who needs to wow their mates this forthcoming Halloween period. Movie right after the break!
