CURIOSITY: Scrolling LED Belt Buckle

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

I got batteries for my belt buckle at - same place I got the buckle. They do chew through batteries quickly! I found if you remove the batteries when you are not using it, they last A LOT longer.

Please help, fast, cuz this is really frusterating. My friend has a scrolling belt buckle, but we don't know how to make the scrolling direction change. He programed all the different sayings in there, but all it will do is blink, so you can't see all of it. How do you make it scroll from right to left? ....... it's like the directions skipped right over that.

Please help.

I bought one of those things and it's great!
The instructions were a bit hard to read, but I found some simplified instructions online: … -belt.html

Do you know if you can erase a message you already inputed in?  Once you hit 6 messages does it just overwrite the old ones?

Ok, I bought a belt buckle from and I got it today.  I can turn it on by putting in the batteries, but the directions don't say how to program it at all??  It has like numbers and letters corresponding to different modes (speeds and brightness) but that's it??  How do I program it w/ my own messages???  Please help!!!
