Introduction: All Surface LED Throwies

About: Im that random kid that no one really notices and is kinda weird.

An LED throwie that can go on many surfaces and isn't magnetic.

Step 1:

Stuff You Need:
Battery (button type) 2032 3V
LED's
Tape
Clay, Scalpy, Playdoh, something....

Ok...
Step 1:
Take the battery and the LED, slip the longer wire (remembering that, that is the + one) and slip that over the top which should have the positive sign one it. same with the bottem
(repeat with more led's)

Step 2: Step 2

Step 2:
Tape to secure the LED's on the battery
(Glue or epoxy could be used if you really want)

Step 3: Step 3

Step 3:
Now take your clay or what ever and form it around the battery so that the LED's are sticking out at one end. Make it semi long like a dart kinda just thicker... any way now your done. Take that and whip it against bricks or concrete.

I know that scalpie doesn't work all that well, playdoh or silly puddy might work better, its still in the beta stage (lol) so I'm profecting it but I though I'd let you guys have a wing at it to see what you come up with. (Ihave pics but their not working right now, but they should be up soon.)

    i haven't tried. but non drying clay seams like it would work well. you might want to warm it up before trying to get it to stick to something tho. easy to get at any craft stores and walmart and such places have it some times. and it comes in different colors to match your led :P

    some of the clay or sticky tacks or whatever you need to whip at the wall in order for it to stick

    if you stick an led throwie to your cars extended antenna you would be able to find your car at night.

    how about covering the car with em instead.

    That would be awsome ,but a temptation for car theives

    unless they were all attached to a remote-controlled unit that shocked anyone who touched them. then it would be a security device.

    or just hooked up to camera flash capacitors. and i'm not talking about those wimpy things in disposable cameras. i'm talking about the kind that are the size of rolls of film and the HUGE nes!

    yeah. just hide one o' them bad boys wired to contacts in the handle. and make something to discharge them at the touch of a button.

     That's what she said......

    you know, someone recently picked the lock on my car and tried (and failed) to hotwire it. it would be cool if yo u make a system that shocks anyone who touches your car while it is locked. couldnt be too hard...

    I was thinking... couldn't you just pick the lock of the car (ignition key) to start it up if you were able to pick the door lock?

    i guess the guy ran out of time or panicked. either way, i am happy to have my car.

    Maybe he saw a nicer lookin' car drive by and thought that he didn't want your car anymore.

    not too hard to do that; just yank out the ignition and connect the two wires.

    no; that requires contact between two points inside the lock as well as being turned in order to work; it's two sets of contacts:one outside the cylinder and one set through the cylinder. this allows the current to pass that starts the car once those contacts meet.

    Oh ok i didn't know that there was a current going through there. I guess it makes sense that you can just hot wire a car.

    yeah... the key's only a key and it's only a lock so you can't turn the car on with a wet popsicle stick...

    welcome. ~~ Sanity is optional. That's why I don't have any. ~~

    hookup an oil burner ingnition transformer to the body of the car.
