    Scrolling display... taillight?

    Just came up with this in an eBay search:

    http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-DIY-LIGHT-CH...item3ca8218dd1

    Its a scrolling red LED belt buckle for $12.

    Now what to program in for use as a commuter taillight?

    These have been around for a long time. DX sells them for about that price too, and in other colors. They're not that bright, and from more than 20 feet away they'd just look like a relatively constant light. You'd be better off with a superflash.
    Work: the 8 hours that separates bike rides.

    Well yeah, if my goal is safety and not bling...

    It's too small to see unless you're standing still and someone is standing within a few feet.

    If you want bling, go get some Hokey Spokes. They're only $30 and they're WAY more bling that that dumb little thing.
