Technosuit V3 – jacket lights controlled by LEAP

A technosuit jacket which lights up in the dark. Control the lights by waving your hand over the integrated LEAP. This is a prototype jacket by darkarps


darkarps: This video demonstrates the first working model of the new technosuit, incorporating motion-capture control. Using the Leap Motion controller, GECO Midi, Lemur and an Arduino Mega 2560 (+Ethernet and EL-Escudo shields), I have designed a system which allows hand movements and MIDI recording/sequencing in Ableton Live to wirelessly communicate with the costume to play back dynamic lighting patterns. This first video demonstrates the suit as a proof of concept, but these are very promising results so far!
