Inspired by the emergence of visual DJs in the electronic music scene, Sync visually connects its wearer to background music by featuring a central LED plus sign that pulses with various intensity based on whatever music is playing. It responds to audio through a small, insular patch in the center of the shirt that is flexible. Because the patch is self-sustaining, there’s no wiring running through the garment. and the patch can be removed for washing or to transferred to another garment.
