The Ultimate Christmas Jumper is designed to be a functional piece of holiday technology that will display an array of different imagery, while also reacting to sounds.
The sweater was created by incorporating an Arduino computer unit into the garment alon with LED panels, an Adafruit Flora development board and battery packs. From here, the garment was made capable of displaying various holiday images that can react to various sounds in the environment thanks to electret microphone amplifiers that listen for sounds.
The Ultimate Christmas Jumper is capable of being created by tech-savvy makers who have a penchant for DIYing. The various instructions on how to create the sweater are available on the Maplin YouTube channel as well as on the Arduino website.
