So here you have it, Enlighted's custom-made scrolling LED message bras, which sell for $500 and up. The LED bra is just one in Janet Hansen's collection of light-up bras and other clothing, perfect for Burning Man attendees.

The Shiny Shiny girls gadget blog appropriately notes that the LED bra might be fashion-forward, but it's "feminism backwards."
