Scrolling LED Belt Buckles. My mind runs away with me about what to use those 256 characters to say.

I saw this a month ago, and have been pondering what message I have that so urgently needs to be broadcast.

The answer: "ROFLCAUST."

A classy item like that deserves super classy words. I'm thinking either 'Pour some sugar on me!' or 'You're my cherry pie!'. Decisions, decisions.

I have one. I like it, but I'm a little kooky that way. Either way, you don't want to put too much on there cause then you'll have a crowd staring at your junk for far too long. I recommend 12 letters or less. I also recommend getting one off ebay if you're so inclined, you'll get it for about 50% less.

Actually, with a wireless connection, I'd scroll baseball scores and take pictures of people looking at my crotch.

A live news or stock ticker would be pretty funny.

Maybe an RSS of Metafilter.

Apparently it's an unpopular opinion, but I think these look somewhat kitschy and fun. If it were 10 bucks instead of 75, I wouldn't mind having one as a novelty item.

$75.00 puts it firmly in the realm of "serious fashion accessory," though, instead of kitsch -- and it's not worth that much...

Oh, and if they were about $20, I'd get one. People don't stare at my crotch nearly as much as I'd like.

P.S. My birthday is coming up soon.

kaseijin, just because I made fun of it doesn't mean I don't want one to piss off people with.

I just saw one of these in Times Square. It was chrome, w/blue LEDs. I don't remember the message as there were too many people for me to get a good look.

Actually, you could detach the buckle and put it in the back window of your car. I'd put it in my Prius and broadcast:

I saw a woman wearing one of these on the subway late last year. I assumed it was some new sort of advertising.

Sing, O goddess, the anger of Achilles son of Peleus, that brought countless ills upon the Achaeans. Many a brave soul did it send hurrying down to Hades, and many a hero did it yield a prey to dogs and vultures, for so were the counsels of Jove fulfilled from the day on which the son of Atreus, king of men, and great Achilles, first fell out with one another.

There used to be a "Scrolling LED Badge" on ThinkGeek for $35, but they must have recently discontinued it, as I'm not finding it outside of Google's cache.

They can still be found on eBay for roughly the same price.

Heh, yeah, the LED belt buckles are <$50 on eBay.

I really feel the need to buy one fo these for the homeless people in my area. I feel sorry for them holding that sign all day, which sometimes has bad spelling and tiny print.
