From this week on, the Light Rider is part of the platform Postfossilmobil – Velogistic

Ab dieser Woche ist unser Light Rider Teil der neuen Plattform Postfossilmobil – Velogistic. The goal of the project is to show cargo bikes and bike trailers in your neighboorhood that are available for rent.

One goal of the Light Rider from day one was to make it available for the community. For Events and actions with or without the technical modules that are available (for more infos see the Light Rider page). We are happy that we can support the Velogistic team an hope that we are now one step closer to our goal, that other people can use the Light Rider for their ideas and purposes.

For more information on Postfossilmobil , take a look into their wiki: wiki.webinprogress.de

Throwie Removal Unit

Hot on the tail of our LED Throwie action at Kottbusser Tor, and because of the roughly 18,000,000 comments on Heise.de about what we were going to do about the batteries, we built a Throwie Removal Unit (Instructable >> here < <)… an extension painters pole with a large metal plate… and took ‘em all down… at least, the 66 out of 350+ that were still there (?!??!??! … our guess is pigeons blinging out their nests… but if anyone has other ideas or facts, we’re interested).

blitzTag at Moritzplatz

‘sup kids ?!?

Video still under production, but here are some quick shots from last Friday’s action.

Word ‘em Up to Street Lab, Prinzessinen Garten, Licht Piraten, and all the writers and public who came out and DIDN’t draw a penis.

GRL Germany at Street Lab Meets Berlin

As part of the Street Lab meets Berlin Fest, we’re showing blitzTag this weekend, plus doing an intro/behind the scenes talk. We’re also working with local artist Shine in Decay, who will be leading an LED throwie workshop & urban installation. Details below:

blitzTag

GRL Germany presents blitzTag, a brand new Laser Tag software, with a whole suite of new features. You are invited to as yet undisclosed location, to bomb urban space with massive light based graffiti. blitzTag is not meant to replace the grand tradition of physical graffiti, it is an alternative open source tool – for urban communication in the digital age.
