Brando USB Light Show Stick: Wave Your Words in the Air

This may be our favorite Brando gadget: a USB programmable LED message wand. It's got room for a message that's around 85 characters long, and its 32 LEDs mean surprisingly good resolution. It even supports banner-style images, has scrolling effects and an optional blue backlight mode. We reckon it's useful when you'd like to get a message to someone from afar, perhaps at a concert, or for dumping your girlfriend while staying out of slapping range. But that's where our imagination runs out. Suggestions, guys?

DISCUSSION

@nutbastard: I happen to be a very good driver, not causing accidents, signaling lane changes , etc. You would die of envy if you knew my insurance rates for FULL maximum coverage.

The last time I was in an accident, I did leave the scene, taped to a head board on a stretcher and put in an ambulance. The "other guy" was taken to the same ER as me, and when the medical staff caught me trying to get up to go kill him (he was puking up his 4 hour bar stint 3 beds down) they had the nerve to sedate me. The only reason I survived (barely) was that I was wearing my seat belt, so dont forget to buckle up and DONT drink and drive.
