Montreal-based start-up company Outline Montréal has created this innovative jaguar mask that can actually change its appearance based on the rhythms of surrounding music.

This black foam mask is decorated with a series eye-catching electro-luminescent blue lights arranged in a number of different patterns. Using sound reactive technology, the many shapes that make up the jaguar mask's design will begin to turn on or off depending on the musical beat, creating a unique and mesmerizing effect.

The jaguar design was chosen because of the nocturnal nature of the animal, which makes sense, considering these light-up masks look the most impressive when displayed in the pitch dark. The masks were actually specially designed to allow wearers in the audience at musical events to become an eye-catching interactive element of the show.
