Georgia Tech Student’s LED Matrix Graduation Cap Was The Best Part of Commencement

The four best years of your life are over, and you need to go out with a bang. And what better way to go out than with a high tech graduation cap?

This Georgia Tech student completely owned his commencement ceremony when he showed up in his blinged-out cap and gown. And we’re not talking about that cliche “thanks Mom and Dad!” sorority crafting BS — we’re talking a high tech scrolling message with LED lights.

Because why the hell not?

From the Redditor TrumpetH4X:

I had the idea to install a 32×32 LED matrix on the top of my mortarboard, with scrolling messages about my time at Georgia Tech. In between messages, I have my cap display a total of six different animated gifs. I’ve shortened the original duration of the displayed text messages in the video attached, but have a look.


• Georgia Tech’s “Miracle on Techwood Drive” vs. FSU

• GT Band parading before a home football game

• The Georgia Tech Solar Racing Team’s car on campus

• The 2014 Capital One Orange Bowl logo

• Waving GT flag

• “The Kick” by Harrison Butker against uga during 2014

Just make sure you get it back after the cap toss… you’re going to want to show your kids what a legend you were in college.
