Arduino-controlled EL-wire Lightsuits, for Skule Nite 1T2
Electroluminescent wire (EL-wire) lightsuits were designed and built for stage performance by a team of engineers, led by Jonathan Sun, for Skule Nite 1T2. These lightsuits were operated by Arduino for specially-timed numbers in the show, and also had manual controls for the performers to operate in other numbers. 10 unique lightsuits with different designs and functionalities were created for the show. (EL-wire is a thin copper wire coated in a phosphor which glows when an alternating current is applied to it.)
EL-wire lightsuit team: Jonathan Sun, Peter Goshulak, Peter Wills, Ian Parker, Adam Fontana, Christine Robson, Felix Pang, Ian Liness, Wayne Lin, Elissa Caccavella, Christopher Sun, Skule Nite 1T2 technical team.
