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

    I've seen blinking LEDs that don't require any other components... they blink all on their own. Now, if I could find an infrared blinking LED, I could make a throwie out of it, and use one of the many "digital camera to night vision" hacks, and I would have an infrared strobe, just like the military. I could mark buildings, people, or vehicles with a strobe light that could only be seen with night vision... SWEET!

    These would be good for spelunking.

    not really when you spelunk or cave (as it is called by cavers not spelunkers) you need 3 sourses of light, and they have to be big. like a head lamp and 2 flashlights. then after that use the LED but it really wont help that much. a good LED headlamp has about 8 or more. and yes i am a caver.

    I was thinking more as a bread crumb trail back to the exit, not as a headlamp

    that WOULD work; and you could also make a grenade-like thing to scatter them all over the place as a sort of flare in case you got lost so people could find you!

    Is there any way to make a type of glue that would not damage fabrics? I was thinking of making one of these for an adapted game of "tag" for night play.

    i use inside-out duct tape for the sticky; it sticks really well! also, you could use super glue on it and apply it a few hours efore you throw it; it will be permanant that way:)!

    you know its kinda funny how many daeros get lured places by a throwie at night.. also when drunk people try to get them out of trees XD

    We have this stuff in Australia called knead it. There's probably the same stuff all over the world. It's basically a 2 part epoxy paste that you knead together. It's fairly solid to begin with, then after 10 minutes or so it sets ROCK HARD. That would be awesome to use

    You might be able to use those little rubber hand things that you slap on walls and stuff and they stick (that is, if you found a way to attach it to the throwie.
