|suit jacket with 500 blue lights|
This men's suit jacket is decorated with over 500 blue LEDs arranged in predominantly vertical columns on the front, back, sleeves, and collar. The spacing between lights is approximately 1 inch (2.5 cm) throughout the design.
Each column is animated with a downward sequential fading pattern, with slight differences in speed between adjacent columns of lights to add a degree of randomness. This allowed us to use relatively simple sequencers to achieve the appearance of highly complex behavior.

This project pushes the limits of the number of LEDs that can be reasonably mounted within a suit jacket, yet it runs for many hours on the same pack of AA batteries.
It was used as a featured prop in a television commercial - watch the video on our youtube channel:
