Ballantynes tshirtOS™

The garment is completely designed in house by Switch Embassy (AKA Agent of Presence).
The biggest challenge in tshirtOS™ project was to integrate electronics into the fabric constructing the t-shirt with normal manufacturer’s tools and supporting the little pieces of electronics on the fabric itself. Pcb coatings and casting were used to assure mechanical stability and washability to the shirt which contains no.896 l.e.d.s positioned on the chest area of the garment in a 28×32 matrix, creating a real flexible display. A little controller is connected via special usb cable that connects also the battery and the bluetooth module that connects with the smartphone.
