Yes. It's just a lot of work. If you have any soldering skills you should be able to do it. You need blue replacement LEDs and to desolder/remove the old LEDs. Solder in the new ones. And you'll have to make some kind of diffuser. The dot matrix screen has a orange plastic diffuser so when you do the Blue color it makes it impossible to shine through. So I made it out of white paper. Which I ended up printing a pattern in gray and white to get the pattern I did (LCARS)
