OK Go’s LED Jackets

Pop band OK Go will be wearing these lovely LED-infused jackets on their next tour, which spell out the name of the band.

Rising star of modern design, Moritz Waldemeyer, is collaborating with the quirky kings of Geek Rock, OK Go, to fashion a new kind of stage performance. The band recently approached Waldemeyer to design the costumes for their latest performance, and his solution quite literally lights up the stage – thousands of LED lights, stitched into the jackets of the four performers, will turn each of them into a moving light show. Waldemeyer’s inspiration was the flickering lights of the slot machines in the casinos of Las Vegas.

    I’m saying this from an outfit standpoint, not a music standpoint.
