I’m graduating from high school on Saturday (6/18), but was dissapointed when they didn’t allow anyone to decorate their graduation caps. So, I decided to take a creative and semi-invisble approach to this - infrared LEDs!

Infrared LEDs emit infrared light, which can not be seen by the human eye, but shows up decently on a video camera. By putting IR leds in my graduation cap, nobody in person would be able to tell, but when i walk across the stage the cameras will capture it - blinking out, through morse code, “Congratulations class of 2011!”

I managed to make all of this the night before graduation, so escuse the messyness!

Well done! smile

Yeah, I’ve wondered about doing that from time to time.

Hmm.. my sister’s wedding is coming up.

I’m thinking an infra-red lapel pin or tie tack. Ooh! IR throwies! Make them wonder why random objects in the room are glowing purple!
