anything's possible. You'd probably have to use LCDs and find a proper wire for them to feed off of.

Sometimes you can replace the entire lcd with a backlit version and all you have to do is add extra power for the light. It depends on the screen size and configuration. Ive heard of some putting leds behind it or around the unlit screen but have never heard how this works.
