Combining cyberpunk culture, clothes and LEDs may seem a bit radical, but people are now creating clothes and accessories that will blow your mind.
With the affordability of LEDs, the ease of 3D printing, and Arduino microcontroller programming, it’s now easier than ever to create some absolutely stunning cyberpunk socks. Here are 8 of the best.
LED Mini Skirt
Our first look is the outfit from Reddit user SexyCyborg, which combines LED lights and a miniskirt that is sure to grab attention. But don’t just think it’s a simple skirt with fancy lights, the practicality is sure to impress.
She came up with her original idea for an LED skirt from a similarly designed Japanese concept called the Hikaru skirt. However, SexyCyborg was not happy. She wanted something more practical and suitable for an adult. (Japanese Hikaru is «a frilly tutu skirt,» as she puts it, and better made for fashion purposes than practical purposes.)
The talented Chinese manufacturer also made a belt with a powerful battery, 3D printed the case, seeded 5050 RGB LED strips inside the skirt, inserted LED strips into a plastic sleeve to protect against sweat and accidental liquor spills, and put it all together. via bluetooth and phone app. If you want to create your own, you can learn about the process and follow her instructions.
The skirt can also change color depending on her surroundings and mood, which she said was a lot of fun during the Fourth of July celebrations.
DIY Cyberpunk LED Eyes
Practicality should not be your main goal. If you’re going to a party that calls for some pretty fancy designs, keep your eyes peeled for cyberpunk LEDs. The designs can vary from cyborgs, demons, aliens and other creatures that stumble into the night.
If you are looking for something that will lie on your head in » situations with high loads», you can reinforce the stainless steel wire or use other materials that may come in handy if you are jumping at a dance party.
If you don’t like LED eyes, consider these cyberpunk LED goggles. In fact, there are plenty of LED glasses on eBay and Amazon, but you can also create your own or customize a previous design. The best thing about the video below is that the glasses are made from «scrap electronics» that you can put around the house and are pretty easy to make.
