Title
(EN) Smart hat device for interacting with remote devices and displays
Abstract
(EN)

In example implementations described herein, there is a smart hat that is configured to receive gesture inputs through an accelerometer or through touch events on the hat, with light emitting diodes providing feedback to the wearer. The smart hat can be configured to be connected wirelessly to an external apparatus to control the apparatus by transmitting and receiving messages (e.g., commands) between the hat and the apparatus wirelessly. Further, a network of smart hats may be managed by an external device depending on the desired implementation.
