This is a simple guide for creating your very own LED throwies. Works best with 100+ of these thrown together. Get a bunch of friends together and go out and "decorate" a house. Or your car on Halloween/Christmas while its parked.

If you make lots you can throw them on buildings and create really cool displays. sorta a graffiti thing, Im not sure if it is illegal to throw them on buildings them on buildings and statues and such, but i think if you don't get caught you will be fine :P. i would suggest just using them for your car or bike. stick em on the wheels of your car or bike at nighttime. they look pretty sweet. You can also use a slingshot to get them up to really high places such as the side of sky scrapers. This is not my own idea, the idea is from www.graffitiresearchlab****. The video, however is entirely my own work.
