The Rapid Coat Retrieval System is an LED light clip that illuminates when the coat attached to it is being retrieved by the owner.

Developed by Cooper Union engineering student Alyssa Davis, ECLIPS is a Rapid Coat Retrieval System concept that aims to make it easier and faster for people to get their coats from coat-check counters.

Davis used to work as a coat-checker in various upscale venues and she observed that people usually have to wait long to check out their coats. She designed ECLIPS to streamline the process and cut down retrieval time.

With ECLIPS, coat-check attendants stamp the coat owners with an invisible ink number and attaches an LED light clip to the coat. To retrieve their coat, the owners hold up the stamped number which the attendant reads using a UV light. The attendant types in the number on a tablet and the corresponding LED light clip lights up, making it easy to identify the person’s coat.
