FIVE-0 is high performance running apparel for rappers. Data from a wearable heart rate monitor augments the lighting pattern displayed on the atheletes chest. At lower heart rates a pulsing gold medallion beats in time with the rappers heart. When their heart rate approaches the aerobic zone, the medallion disolves into a sparkling diamante pattern.

FIVE-0 is constructed from APA102 led strips, an Intel Edison, a TI 74AHCT125 level shifter and is powered by a 4400mAh powerbank.
