Surprised after reading the title? But, yes… there is new brand as well as astounding invention in the modern technology world, called as a Video Coat.
The graph of the technology is going higher and higher with each passing day. You never know what innovative inventions and discoveries you are going to view in the morning newsprint. The current boom in this amazing sci-fi world is of colorful, wearable LED video coat.
The video coat: What and How?
The wearable technology has always made new happenings at the random tech shows, from the early days of the Bluetooth headsets to jackets with numerous pockets that allow you to keep your iPods, yet an another great stylish happening in the current tech scenario is of LED Video Coat.
The Video Coat is a color TV set built into a lab coat powered by the 12V battery support. It is a 60” LED with 160x 120 pixel color LED display that is built on flex boards. It has a sleek look even in the back. It will play standard analog video from an iPod or DVD player. Also it plays standard NTSC (North American) analog video from an iPod or DVD player.
Let us view some more information about the Video Coat
The TV is driven by circuit boards on the shoulders and hips. The display strips (RGB LEDs) are of narrow flex boards joined by the flat flex cables. Video processing is taken care of by a Xilinx FPGA (Field Programmable Gate Array) that takes the video feed from the iPod and converts it into four separate RGB streams for the front and back sides. The sleeves are also connected with them. The necessary controls for the brightness, volume and color are on shoulders so that the user can easily have a control over the video coat.
Hats off to the creator of the Video coat, Mr. David Forbes.
