The MeU Square is a wearable LED display that can be used to customize clothing and accessories. The system is controlled by a smartphone app that allows users to display text, images and shapes to communicate with people around them. The system has wide-ranging potential applications in the realms of outdoor activity, marketing, fashion and more.
For example, cyclists could use the MeU Square's customizable display to communicate their intentions to motorists. Public transit employees could wear vests that display updates to pedestrians. The system also has obvious fashion applications, and has already been featured in Toronto's men's fashion week.
The system offers a full-color LED matrix comprising 256 LEDs, a microcontroller and a Bluetooth module that allows it to accept commands from smartphones. The material is flexible and thin and can be worn with any style of clothing.
