'Gravity of Light' is an artistic and interactive LED hat designed by Younghui Kim and Yejin Cho. It responds to movement by simulating the affect gravity has on water and brilliantly illuminates this compensation using LED lights.

With a chic style reminiscent to macrame, the LED hat is actually made up of 3D-printed textile and is embedded with electronic circuitry. The circuits are responsible for inducing the movement of the light pixels which creates the illusion the hat is level-headed, even if the one wearing the hat isn't.

Interactive clothing has been on the rise lately and this recent example is a great inspiration. The technology used in this hat can be transferred to other avenues as it is a fun and creative idea.
