Neighbourhoodie is an Interactive Hoodie and Game Platform for the iPod Touch and iPhone. This comfy, hooded garmet is fully outfitted with speakers in the hood, LED lights and other electronics, so that once plugged into an iPod Touch or iPhone, the world is turned into a video game through the use of light, sound and sensors. Neighbourhoodie combines the energy of street games with the thrill of interactive game play. Play games you know, enhanced with lights and sounds or create new games. Explore the gesture of pulling the hood up, not to withdraw from the world, but to enter into a world of collaborative experience. Be your own video game!
