Week 19 - Chest armor is controlled with infra red remote. 2 packs of 12v AA batteries. Helmet is powered by a 9v. Chest armor has different light features. Can be remotely changed to 25/50/100% brightness with different light settings.

Week 06/07 - Taking my time setting up LED casings to put into my vest. Standard 5050 LEDs. Found some make up casings from Spotlight then i just dremel-ed what i needed. Used baking paper as a diffuser, coz cheap!
