Students across the globe are coming up on graduation season, and Dan Barkus wanted to be sure his family could spot him in the crowd. Naturally, a little tinkering was necessary.
His LED graduation cap displays full-colour animated graphics. He can even text phrases to the hat and they’ll scroll across: “finally done” and “hi mom [sic]” is what he goes for in this demo. (We’re not sure if there’s a character limit, but might we suggest “Hey, does anyone else think this speech about joining the workforce and pursuing our dreams is a bit hackneyed?”)
Best of luck in your future endeavours, Dan. Just please remember not to throw your cap. No one wants to spend graduation night in A&E.
