“Invisibility clothing in 20 minutes" involves attaching a webcam at the back of a garment to capture the objects or scenery behind it. The captured image is then displayed on the front of the garment through a set of LED strips.
The tutorial consists of 10 videos, each two minutes long on average, demonstrating the key steps to accomplishing the project. The steps include a webcam test, how to connect the LED modules with the Intel Edison, as well as instructions on what to do with the garment that serves as the invisibility cloak.
Part 1: Presentation of the project and material
Part 2: Configuration of the Edison Board
Part 3: Test with the webcam
Part 4: LED explanation and test
Part 5: LED driver information
Part 6: Get information from webcam
Part 7: Send information to LED
Part 8: Packaging - wiring and soldering
Part 9: Packaging - couture
Part 10: Final demo and opening
Though great as a programming exercise the result is rather unconvincing and no more than a gadget. Somehow I think Edison would agree to encouraging Intel to do a better job using flexible 4K displays. And possibly VR glasses for the entire audience.
