Check out this new form of graffiti. They go by the name of LED throwies, most probably because that’s what you do with them. Throw them at things; buildings, signs, cars, buses, trains, you name it. They cling onto ferromagnetic surfaces due to a magnet within the throwie.
These ‘throwies’ allow anyone to create a form of street art that’s never been seen before and is a form of graffiti that is non-destructive, so everybody wins.
I love these because they are so simple to make and help people to express themselves using a vibrantly coloured, non-destructive technique. Try making some yourself!!
The throwies are made using a few inexpensive components including:
10mm diffused LED,
CR2032 3V Lithium Batteries,
1-inch wide Strapping Tape,
1/2″ Dia x 1/8″ Thick NdFeB Disc Magnet, Ni-Cu-Ni plated, and
LED throwies were developed at the Graffiti Research Lab, a division of the Eyebeam OpenLab
