Broadcast, a wearable company based in India has just launched their LED-based T-shirts that allow you to customize and change any message on the shirt with the accompanying app. The app can be used to display text as well as shapes. The T-shirt is fitted with an LED panel that connects to a Bluetooth chip and a battery. You can also use the broadcast logo on the shirt to swipe through your different designs.
Customisation options include a round neck or collar T-shirt, LED panel on the front or back and of course sizes and colours.
Apart from your own personal use, companies can also use these T-shirts for promotions. For example broadcast says that companies can display a live Twitter feed on the T-shirts or even use the API to have a specific content display on all the employees T-shirts.
Two other unique features include an ad platform that lets you use the T-shirt as adspace and earn money from it and also a gameplay option which lets a person use a smartphone as a controller and a friends T-shirt as a display screen.
The t-shirt has to be hand washed, and the battery has a life of around 4 hours and charges via a USB cable.
The Nintendo comics system consisted of a number of comic books featuring Mario as well as other characters from the video games such as Zelda, Captain N and Samus Aran from Metroid. Captain N is based on the cartoon show and Zelda of course based on the Zelda series of video games. Samus Aran is featured in the Captain N comic books and and doesn’t have his own book.
Under the comics system series, there were four editions of super Mario bros, four editions of Captain N and also a series called adventures of the Super Mario Bros. In the Super Mario Series apart from Mario, the books also featured Luigi, Princess Toadstool, Toad and Bowser, the leader of the Koopa race. The Super Mario Bros series is based on the three games released on the Nintendo Entertainment System.
The Game Boy comic books were also based on Mario and featured a character by the name of Tatanga who could easily hypnotise people into doing his dirty work.
Apart from the comics system, Nintendo adventure books were also published. These books were also based on the video game characters and the reader makes decisions that change the end result of the book. Out of these 12 books only two are about Zelda and the rest are Mario books. The books also feature puzzles and a scoring system.
The books were published by Valiant comics which eventually went out of business and was acquired by Acclaim entertainment.
