The Gravity Of Light Hat Made On A 3D Printer (+VIDEO)
A team of designers from South Korea has made an illuminated hat that combines 3D technologies with a tilt sensor. The Gravity of Light hat is a freakish wearable art project by Younghi Kim and Yejin Cho is made on a 3D printer with integral electronics. The hat has a knitted exterior and each “knot” contains an individual LED that turns on and off depending on the tilt of your head, producing an impression, as though they are flowing with gravity. This unusual project is funded by the Seoul Foundation for Arts and Culture, Seoul Art Space GEUMCHEON and is backed up by the Hongik University WCU Digital Media Public Art Lab.
