PROVO — BYU engineering professor Aaron Hawkins saw a performance during an episode of "America’s Got Talent" that caught his eye.

A group of dancers were performing in the dark, wearing suits that lit up in sync with the music.

Less than a year later, with financial support from L3 Communications, Hawkins and a team of electrical engineering students and faculty have created fully-functioning, eye- catching light suits that flash to music.
