The LED Kippah

I just saw that there is now an LED Kippah (yarmulke) that you can buy on the Web. (Update: the website is no longer operational so perhaps it wasn't a successful idea)

You can program your own scrolling message. Perhaps donors will contribute money to the congregation for their name to scroll down the rabbi's kippah?

Think of all the messages I could display on my kippah during services:
  1. Today's Kiddush sponsored by the Goldberg family
  2. Please keep side conversations to a minimum
  3. Turn off cellphones please
  4. In memory of [yahrzeit name here]
  5. Please don't be offended by anything said in my sermon
  6. How's my preaching? Call 800-2-KVETCH
  7. My other head covering's a Detroit Tigers hat
  8. CNBC Stock Ticker
  9. This LED message was not programmed on Shabbat or Yom Tov
  10. News Headlines crawler from
