HSL Jacket

July 2018/July 2023 Source


HSL Jacket is an idea I came up with back in 2018, after seeing the Million Color HSL Flashlight in Make: Magazine. I thought it would be really cool to have a jacket with LEDs, controllable using the zipper to change the hue, saturation, and brightness. My attempt in 2018 didn’t quite work properly due to bad power management, but the idea stuck with me.

In 2023, I decided to revisit the project and finally fulfill my vision from 5 years prior. It worked!
