Arduino Powered Party Shirt

Picture of Arduino Powered Party Shirt
This idea began years ago after my purchase of the soundtrack shirt from thinkgeek. It was an awesome shirt, but as is my nature I thought of some improvements. Specifically lights that pulse and blink to the music. After many failed attempts the party shirt was born. This shirt was possible through the help of akcarl's Beat Sync instructable.
