And Now: An LED-Encrusted Snowboarding Suit

Eye-popping spectacles often require a lot of engineering to produce, as is evident in this latest viral video, entitled L.E.D. Surfer:

What you are seeing is pro snowboarder William Hughes taking to the slopes wearing a stunning snowsuit covered in LED lights. The video was produced for the fashion and culture blog Nowness, and was shot by photographer and filmmaker Jacob Sutton. Shooting conditions were less than ideal, with temperatures reaching below -13 degrees Fahrenheit. The LED suit, created by electrical engineer and designer John Spatcher, reportedly took over 300 hours to make!

  1. woah…that looks awesome. how hot do you think the LED lights got? maybe they could have kept the snowboarder warm in the -13 degrees…
    so cool….
