The LED Throwies are very cool, however they could be a little more attention getting with just 2 extra components.
This Instructable will show you how to make a flashing LED Throwie.
Step 1: Parts list
a 10mm LED (I recommend, that you use a diffuse LED. I live in Denmark and the diffuse LEDs aren't available here, so I just used a waterclear type)
a CR2032 lithium coincell battery.
a Neodymium (NdFeB) disc magnet.
a LM3909 LED Flasher circuit
an Electrolytic capacitor (the bigger the capacitor is, the slower the LED flashes. I figured out, that a 100µF works fine. It will flash the LED at approx. 2.5Hz, while a 220µF will flash it with 1Hz.
