A shirt that says whatever you want

This is a T-shirt that says whatever you want on it -- slogan, witty saying, image -- whatever.

There are electronic threads that create a matrix in the front of the shirt. Somehow, you can program designs into it. Probably bluetooth, communicating the pattern to a chip somewhere on the shirt.

       What's an electronic thread?

       sounds a bit like magic to me.. but a great idea.. how do you suggest it working [lawpoop] ?

       Lazy baking [lawpoop]. Avoid using "somehow" and "probably" (and "electronic threads" come to that), work out how you are going to do this, then tell us about it. D Minus, could do better.

       Electro luminescent fabric is available and will work for this application. Bring money.
