The Graffiti Research Lab (who bill themselves as ”Dedicated to outfitting graffiti artists with open source technologies for urban communication) have come up with LED Throwies, which is just a LED light, a lithium battery, a magnet and some tape, but makes for one hell of a pretty to gussy up the sides of buildings and bridges.  Click the pic for a video of Throwies in action.

The collaborative projects site Instructables.com has the lowdown on how to make your own Throwies.

(For the musically curious, the song in the video is José González doing a cover of The Knife’s ‘Heatbeats’ )

    Okay.  Think of how much nicer Chipotle will look afterwards…

    Just wait until some sleep-deprived cop sees somebody sticking one of these on something and pops a cap in his ass because he thought it might be a bomb or something.
