You down with LED? Yeah, you know me!

No kidding, MJJ, As a Boston-area resident I could barely resist the urge to hysterically machine-gun my computer screen to protect myself from the terror hat.

Every time I see toddlers with pressure-activated LEDs in their little sneakers, I wistfully fantasize anew that those funky ol' disco shoes were available in 11 1/2 Wide.

at an estimated price of 10-20 thousand dollars per unit, I don't think we're going to see these wandering Logan airport anytime, soon.

props for the invader and pac-man historical acknowledgment, tho.

ALSO WANT.

BUT IF THERE'S ONLY 1 I TOTALLY GET IT IT.

We should really just be putting LEDs in everything we can. Imagine a jacket with a huge grid of those on the back. You'd be a walking animated lite brite.

That hat reminds me of my own human heart.

How very Burning Man.

Definitely saw LED's at the Man who Burns this last time. One guy had an LED jacket, very eye-catching.

All I can think of is Anthony Criss throwing a hard punch into Matthew Lesko's face.

Yikes. You can get some LED interesting apparel at much better rates. These aren't specifically LED, but they are rather fetching luminescents.

Colored lights + boobs + spirograph = bizarre fusion of childhood nostalgia and teh horny.

What an asshat.

Well that certainly makes a better New Year's Eve party hat than those dumb plastic ones. Although you might not want to drink beer out of this one.

Not so much off topic as a cautionary tale. If you take to wearin' a hat like that, someone's gonna be gettin' some OPP and that OP is gonna be YOU!
