LED T-Shirt Designs

Animated LED T-Shirts

A few years ago I scoffed at the idea of embedding LED lights into a T-shirt. Tacky was the word that came to mind. But then Tony Stark made it look cool, so now you can buy T-Shirts that mimic the appearance of an Arc Reactor beneath the surface of the shirt.

I believe that approach can be applied to a few other designs. Seen above are a few examples:

1. The Incredibles. I thought it would be fun to include the “homing beacon” light seen in the film. Ideally it would only go off once per hour, which would be great for battery life. If it were also feasible I’d have it link up with your phone via Bluetooth, so the light would blink when you got a call or text.

2. Razer Electronics. Okay I’m a bit of a Razer fanboy. I dig their use of ambient LEDs throughout their PC peripherals and laptops. Their logo was the first thing that came to mind when I saw the Arc Reactor t-shirt.

3. The Tardis. The single light on top of the Tardis would make this an ideal candidate for an LED tee. Sound effects are a possibility.

That’s it for pictured designs. A few other designs that could apply (on the basis of using a single LED light): The Autobot Matrix of Leadership, NHL ’94 goal light, R2D2,  T-800 (single red eye), and Cyclops from the X-Men. Anything else you’d like to see?
