LED Graffiti Throwies

Developed by the Graffiti Research Lab a division of the Eyebeam R&D OpenLab, LED Throwies are an inexpensive no-clean Graffitti to add color to any ferromagnetic surface in your neighborhood.

A Throwie consists of a lithium battery, a 10mm diffused LED and a rare-earth magnet taped together. Throw it up high and in quantity to impress your friends and city officials.

Everything began with a campaign in Manhattan in which LED throwies were handed out and people were encouraged to throw them onto a large metal sculpture called Alamo.

The spread like wildfire on Internet, and just a few weeks later they were spotted in London, Hamburg and Berlin. But not yet in Hong Kong!
