The garment is a pair of suspenders made of lustrous acrylic fur that disperses the light from 60 different individually controlled, IP67 waterproof LED pixels, each capable of creating millions of color combinations. The design is based on a standard pair of Y-shaped suspenders. There are three easy to use suspender clips, one on the end of each strap. You can wear it like regular suspenders, toss it around your neck like a scarf, hold it out in your hands to watch the effects crawl up your arms, stick it to your backpack, or anything else you can think of! Sewn and assembled in Portland, OR, this garment is made to last and held to the highest quality standards.
Watch these short How To videos to learn about how each of the three effects works, as well as how to adjust the brightness:
Just a few of the different ways to wear it.
It comes in two sizes, small and large.
For the most accurate reactions to your body movements, position the controller in your waistband behind your back, with the belt clip facing outwards. However, don't be afraid to get creative with it! Whatever body part or accessory you attach the controller to will control the lights with it's movement.

The centerpiece of the technology is a small controller that holds two AA batteries and clips on to your waistband. This controller houses the accelerometer and processor that turn your movements into dazzling light displays. Since the modes are designed to adjust to your movements automatically, only two buttons are necessary: a power button to turn it on and off, and a mode button to select the mode and adjust the brightness.
The battery life is around 7 hours at normal brightness. Decreasing the brightness to low brightness extends the life to about 9 hours, and increasing to max brightness brings the life down to about 6 hours. You can use any off the shelf AA batteries. We did extensive testing using Energizer Pro Rechargeable AA batteries off Amazon with great results. Batteries are not included with the Kickstarter rewards.
We spent countless hours fine tuning our movement recognition algorithms and designing the most fun and interactive patterns possible. Each of the three modes is tailored to a different situation, and has been extensively tested to make it easy and fun for the first time user, but also to allow advanced users to specifically trigger different effects to create deliberate patterns.
These suspenders will make a serious impression at any festival, rave, late night bike ride, house party, night run, or any other night time event! Let us know where you take it!
