They've gone and made a scrolling LED bra. (news.com.com) This is... intriguing.

I think this technology "jumped the shark" for me last year when, during our annual Stampede, I saw a guy whose LED belt buckle read "I DO ANAL."

I have three LED type lights on my tenspeed, and it's remarkable technology... but I agree with you guys. The belt buckle (and now, bra) is just ridiculous.

Do anyone who actually wears these things know how tacky they are?

Props to the site, however: the photog credit is funny.

At the club I work at I see these things all the time, usually one 3 to 5 different guys any given Saturday night. We usually get a good laugh out of it, especially when the guy has the LED belt buckle AND medallion.

Nothing as good as "I DO ANAL" though.

The next natural step? Why, rims of course (leftlanenews.com):

    Originally posted by Left Lane News
    In the last few days you may have read about some high-tech rims called Pimpstar. Theyre available from CustomWheel and theyre unlike any rims weve seen before. Using built-in color LED lights, they can display any digital image on the wheels.


The embedded video says you can update the image on the wheels WHILE YOU DRIVE. Clearly, this is just about the greatest thing I've ever seen.

edit: PICS!

(image removed)

The included software allows you to create your own images and send them to each wheel individually or all wheels at the same time as you drive! You can even pre-load up to six images into each wheel and program them to change automatically at the time intervals you select. The wheels are environmentally sealed, so you don't have to worry about going to the car wash; and they are powered by the vehicle electrical system so there are no batteries to run out or change, ever.

I must own those.

I don't buy any car stuff, but I can't believe how obnoxious I could be with those.

Yes, yes you could. Remember, there's only 4000+ people you can piss off before we have to move.

I'm sure there's a guy in this town who, as I type this, is working on "I DO ANAL" rims.

They would have to be anal rims.
