Here’s a cool remote controlled graduation cap by Jeremy Blum:

Congrats to Jeremy Blum for graduating from Cornell University! He made a cool Remote Controlled Graduation Cap that he controls using a custom built wrist control box. The cap has an RGB LED in it and is capable of not only grabbing user submitted color suggestions but also a variety of pre-programmed ones. If you would like to see how it works Jeremy has made it open source and you can see the code here.
