How to make a LED throwie

What is a LED throwie? LED throwies were developed by the Graffiti Research Lab as a form of removable, reusable interactive art. By combining LEDs, batteries, and rare earth magnets, you can make brightly coloured lights that will stick to any ferromagnetic surface.

Western Fair has invited the MakerBus to sell throwies at the 2014 Western Fair to help raise money to support our goal of building Canada’s first mobile makerspace and technology education classroom. Join us in the Progress Building September 5th-14th and for $2 you can learn how to make your own LED throwie that you can take home with you.

Together we can light up London.
