LED TV Coat Designed For Burning Man

July 11, 2011


Seen here looking cooler than a cucumber in a bowl of Rectal Fire hotsauce, Dave Forbes displays the 160x120 pixel LED television coat he built to wear to Burning Man. Me? I'm just gonna wear a gourd on my pecker LIKE A NORMAL PERSON. Jk jk, normal people don't go to Burning Man.

The Video Coat is a 60" LED video display built onto a lab coat.

160x120 pixels, 0.3" (7.62mm) dot pitch RGB. Powered by a 12V battery.
Plays standard NTSC (North American) analog video from an iPod or DVD player.

There's a couple more pictures and a video of the coat in action after the jump if you're interested. But if you're interested in something a little cooler (temperature wise), 7-11 is giving away free 7.11oz Slurpees today to celebrate their "birthday" (because it's 7/11, derder). Still, 8-ounces -- that's it? That's not even big enough to get a brainfreeze! "Yes it is too." Haha -- CAUSE YOUR BRAIN'S SO SMALL! *looks around for a high-five, settles for awkward neck-scratch*

Hit it for a couple more pictures and the bideo (bideo is the new video).

Thanks to Andy, who's actually friends with Dave and claims he's a real brainiac. Nice, ask him if wants to join my evil mad scientist club. Just sayin', I've got a treehouse!
