I'm convinced. It has to be done. Besides the RObe is far too small for me anyway so I need to extend it with something.


Ha! I can just picture this (although I think you SHOULD take a picture and post it), since there's 6 inches between my robe cuff and my wrist, yours must what, come to your bicep?


I'm guessing it looks a lot like the robe does on Justin in that pic :lol: I'm actually surprised it fits across Justin's shoulders!

I need to talk to my liver twin, he thought up a way to make the el wire pulse to the music while we were on the ship. I'm assuming a couple of small mics and transistors to switch the pulse controller, but we never managed to talk it over (there was MUSIC going on dammit!) ;)

@Tai: acually it's a little more involved than that, but yes you can start out simple. I fiddled a little bit with a CPU doing FFT on the incoming sound and let the separated channels drive triacs. But what I'm thinking about now goes down to how the wire is fabricated.

I'll see if I have a pic of the RObe with its inhabitant. It's a lot of flagging on half staff going on. The One-Size-Fits-Nobody approach isn't exactly fair. I know it's a fun givaway, but dangit I paid $10,000 for that RObe!
Maybe I can buy some leftover pieces off Tiny Rager? :lol:

And I fully support the robe pimpage. Its a great trend to start

...self expression is one of life's beautiful gifts... and also high on that list of life's beautiful gifts is the RO robe... I too fully support robe pimpage, although I choose instead to use mine where I see it almost daily to and fro the shower... and I smile wide when I wear it, but my smile was wider as when I saw Justin's robe, great work there bro!!!! :CLAP: :D 8)
