Scrolling LED Dog Tag


OK, OK — you liked the idea on belt buckles and license plate holders but let's face it, those aren't gonna get you past the velvet ropes.

This will.

From the website:

    Let everyone know just what you’re thinking with this amazing Blue LED Dog Tag.

    Enter your favorite saying and watch it magically scroll from bottom to top in bright blue LED letters.

    Easily create a message up to 118 characters using the controls hidden behind rear panel.

    Display your team spirit, your name, or whatever is on your mind.

    Blue LED letters visible day and night.

    Adjust the speed the message travels and the brightness of the letters.

    Button cell batteries included.

    About 3" long with 28" chain.

You know you want one.

Really, really badly.


In red, you say?

No problema.

$19.98 here.



I'm hoping one of my brighter readers (I.Q. in triple figures — you know who you are) will offer, in the comments section or, if you prefer, via private email, an explanation of why the blue version of these devices always cost more than the red.

Suits me. Can't stand blue backlighting - it makes it hard for me to read 'cos my eyes, like other humans, don't focus blue as well as green or red. One day I'll summon up the tuits to take my mobile apart and replace the LEDs with red ones so I can use it at night.

Hi Joe,

It's down to the significant cost differences of the LEDs themselves. LEDs in order of decreasing cost: Ultra Violet, Blue, White, Green, Amber, Red.

I hope any dog unfortunate enough to have an owner who would inflict such an embarrassingly tacky thing on him would run away at the first opportunity. Maybe to some place with a ball throwing machine.
