You need a provide the LED strips, an Arduino Nano and a regulated +5VDC power supply to complete the build. You also need to solder some 3-pin male header pins to your LEDs strips to connect with the sockets provided on the printed circuit board (PCB). You change you message by uploading a new sketch to the Arduino Nano (via a USB cable, not included) using the Arduino IDE software available from the Arduino website.
