 Wearable LED Television

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.

The set-up comprises a chip similar to that used in scaling down the images for security cameras, and another chip similar to the one used in controlling big LED signs used for advertisements. Forbes was able to put together his wearable display by adding a small set of circuits that convert video output of the iPod to the smaller resolution.

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.
