It's hardware/software hack. We created a wireless sweater that takes in messages from the internet (our webapp, http://coalition-for-the-li.nko3.jit.su/) and wirelessly displays them on our LoL Shield powered by an arduino built into our own handmade christmas sweater.
Please watch the video in order to see the demo of the site + sweater. If you would like to schedule a live demo, please let us know, we are free all week.
There are three different node.js applications. One at the root, one at https://github.com/nko3/arduino-bridge, and the one in the Client folder that takes messages from the web and displays it. In the Arduino folder we have our CLIT board that contains the marquee functionality, and the font library, that's in C++.
