Geek Gear: LED Belt Buckles

These may not be the chicest geek apparel on the market, but they may be the most blingin'.

Our friends over at Apartment Therapy spotted these limited-promotional LED belt buckles at Macy's for $50. Adorned with rhinestones, the belts feature an LED screen that can be programed to display short messages.

It reminds me of the TuneBuckle, which allows you to fit your iPod in your belt, but seems to be a near exact replica of the Iced Out Scrolling LED belt, which is only $29.

I figure an LED belt buckle is ideal if you're looking for an outfit to wear to a rave or if you are looking for a cheap way to broadcast your booth at a county fair. Apartment Therapy suggests you mount one on the wall instead of on your body. "Use it to write a cute (short) note to your significant other, a word to meditate on, the theme of the day, or whatever you want to put on it to spark conversation," says their editor. I'll second that.

my boyfriend aka the king of tacky has one of those and loves it. I think it's hilarious and people out in public seem to agree.

They've had these for literally years.. the only difference now being the humongo silver lookin buckle around the lcd screen. If i was gonna have one of these things i'd take the original without all that extra "bling", but to seeing me with one of these means something is VERY wrong
