Now you can watch television shows on your T-shirts. An Arizonan engineer has come up with a wearable LED television that can be worn as a jacket.
David Forbes, an electrical engineer by profession, was keen on building something really cool to wear at the Burning Man festival. So he re-purposed a comparatively simple flexible circuit board covered with LEDs.
He made the first with 30 rows of four LEDs each and then contracted a manufacturer to build 175 more of them. He attached them to an old coat and was able to build a display with a 160 x 120 resolution, which he notes on his blog is exactly half that of an iPod, Discovery News reported.
A full wrap-around display is priced at 39,995 dollars while a front-only will cost 24,995 dollars. Wait time is around four months.
