LED Skirt From Japan

Imagine how cool would it be if you could have some lighting on/in your clothes that would illuminate the features of your body that you have been working on for so long? Looks like the Japs already turned this idea into a reality with this LED skirt.

Japanese are known for their extra-advanced technology. They also enjoy a fair share of fame when it comes down to weirdly innovative technologies for improvisation in the standard of living. Innovations like thigh pillows, weird eye droppers, etc. were innovation of Japan, and now, these brilliant minds have come across another innovation that will literally blow your mind away. Just three words for this innovation: SKIRTS and LED Lights, which actually makes it LED Skirt.

Yeah, you guessed it right. For years have we been trying to illuminate our clothes with all those shiny materials available in the market but it seems that the Japs took a leap ahead and settled on a pretty simple solution which was staring us right in our faces. All they did was convert that simple skirt to LED skirt by inserting a strip of Bluetooth controlled LEDs. Known as the “Hikaru Skirt“, the technology has been devised by Kiyayuki Amano, who used a 3D printer, Bluetooth technology, and a control board to get this thing ready.

This DIY LED skirt kit will soon be in production and the day isn’t far when you will be able to see these kits in your local market, thanks to the people who will copy this technology, or to the exporters of Japan if they get this technology patented. But nonetheless, this ordinary looking skirt deceives anyone who has a glimpse of it!
