Make yourself an uber-geek with the scrolling LED belt buckle. If you feel you become common because everybody around you is wearing a mobile phone, a PDA, a MP3 player and a Bluetooth headset, this might be the right toy to make you feel better. ;-)
Introducing the most technologically advanced piece of clothing since the hypercolor T-Shirt - the LED scrolling belt buckle.


  • Is this for real?
    Yes. In fact, here’s a video to prove so.
  • How much is it?
    The buckles are $29.99 plus $6.49 shipping and handling.
  • Does it come with batteries and instructions?
    Why yes, yes it does!
  • Can I program it with custom phrases?
    Yep. It can hold up to six unique messages at a time, with each message being 256 characters long. You can change these messages at any time.
  • Can I change things like the speed of the messages and how bright the display is?
  • Is this buckle compatible with the standard buckle belt?
    Yes. We don’t sell actual belts, but you can probably use any existing buckle-style belt you have. Or get one at, like, any store.
  • Can I put my MP3s on it?

What - no MP3s!? ;-) Now if this could ream my SMS messages but wait a minute, this wouldn't makes sense since I don't want to show my received SMS everybody. So the question is - what is it good for?

Anyway - if you feel the need to get one now - you can order it from for US$ 29,99 plus shipping.

Cheers ~ Arne
