ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI)- Nick Gates fuses Hip-hop dance, sculpture, fashion and electronics at his exhibit at the World Chess Hall of Fame. Gates had me slip on a jacket that can be linked remotely to the turn signals on your motorcycle. If you signal left, the jacket signals left. You put on the brakes, you have brake lights on your jacket. He let a dancer from The Fury Dance Crew show that the jacket can be just plain cool.
Gates is also a choreographer who works with kids, teaching them the fundamentals and future of Hip-hop Dance.
You can see his sculptures and electronic wearables during the final week of the Living Like Kings Exhibit at the World Chess Hall of Fame.
