Synchronised LED wearables use ESPNow beacons to synchronise colors whenever they get near each other. When many of these are around they form groups of matching colours, whenever a new member jins the group will syncronise to a new color.
This effect helps one to "find your clan" at large area festivals such as Burning man or its regionals ( Afrikaburn or Midburn ) as well as other similarly sized outdoor festivals that have a large nighttime component.
LEDs are covered in Faux Fur to diffuse and soften the harsh LED direct light.
The initial Wearables were based n ESP32, but ESP8266 can also be used if care is taken with timing contraints imposed by the single core esp8266 and blocking loops for LED writing.
