It depends how simple.<p>Here's a link for a fairly cool and simple sign:<p>http://www.bobblick.com/techref/project ... dsign.html

with that size of sign, we're now getting into microcontroller land.<p>mainly PICs, since there are plenty of projects out there using a PIC to create a sign.<p>If you have the ability to program PICs, here's a link for you:<p>http://www.interq.or.jp/japan/se-inoue/e_pic6_2.htm<p>http://www.zws.com/products/picxie2/<p>If not, I'd be happy to put the code onto a suitable PIC for you, providing that I get compensation for the price of the PIC (~$5-8 or so).

Local guy is building some here---the size of a BUSINESS CARD (well, a little thicker). Accessory module connects to your PC for programming the thing. Runs off of lithium batteries.<p>www.LightTags.com<p>They were selling them at the fair for $60---I think retail is ~$75...
