Create a fashion light show with your own LED voice-activated tie #Fashion DIY#geeky#groom gear#superficial snack March 14 2013 | Catherine Clark bijouxandbits Photo and video courtesy of Adafruit via Laughing Squid Sometimes a man (or dapper bride!) just needs a trusty, voice-activated LED tie to feel complete. Oh, you don't have one of those? Then it's time to get down and dirty with a little tech-friendly DIY. Adafruit created this magical-looking tie that has a working VU meter (volume unit meter). Your vows could become a synchronized light show, ya'll! It takes a few supplies like FLORA wearable connections, conductive thread, and of course, a tie (or whatever item of clothing you plan to electronically bling-out). High tech fashion FTW!

Wouldn't fit in anywhere with our theme, but I still feel like I need it! Reply I want one of these for everyday life! Reply Great video! I'm nothing like technologically literate but I'm still planning to use something like this to make a voice-activated earlamp headband for my upcoming Dalek dress. Thanks!
