This is a T-shirt that says whatever you want on it -- slogan, witty saying, image -- whatever.

There are electronic threads that create a matrix in the front of the shirt. Somehow, you can program designs into it. Probably bluetooth, communicating the pattern to a chip somewhere on the shirt.

       What's an electronic thread?

       sounds a bit like magic to me.. but a great idea.. how do you suggest it working [lawpoop] ?

       Lazy baking [lawpoop]. Avoid using "somehow" and "probably" (and "electronic threads" come to that), work out how you are going to do this, then tell us about it. D Minus, could do better.

       OLEDs (this years magic, just like we all attributed the unexplained completions to bluetooth, about four years ago).

       OLEDs. Thanks, Ian.

       Electro luminescent fabric is available and will work for this application. Bring money.
