I got an email a little while ago from Mitja Prelovšek who runs the lighting website Enlighter. (Sorry I haven’t posted this yet Mitja, I’m in just released software land!) Enlighter did a project recently with interactive product called Light Act, which is pretty cool — imagine tracking a person as they walk past a […]
Dutch designers Nieuwe Heren make another appearance on JimOnLight.com! You might remember them from their very cool Deconstructed Floodlight about a year ago. Meet the Aegis Parka — a jacket that lights up to warn you about polluted areas in real time.

Hey Bono, quit shining your darned jacket into my eyes! Ah, I kid. Have you seen Bono’s laser jacket? As if he wasn’t cool enough, Moritz Waldemeyer designed a jacket for the latest 360° Tour that has 240 lasers embedded in it.

What? I just read an article about a dress that lights up when a cell call is received. Tennis pro Maria Sharapova recently unveiled the dress for reporters and other photographer-types in front of a store in London.
