Last weekend GRL Berlin ran a wonderful LED-Throwie workshop at CYNETART festival in Dresden. Around 20 motivated participants joined in to make red, green, blue and yellow LED-Throwies – oh yes, no messing around there with colors – each color had its own table! One dark underpass at the Neustadt neighborhood got lucky to be picked as the new home of 700 shining Throwies.
GRL Germany is starting 2013 with a new make of the GRL-Classic LED-Throwie.
We are proudly introducing the LED-Mud-Throwie! LED-Throwies are no longer restricted to ferromagnetic structures but can now even conquer any concrete, marble or stone surfaces…
Come along and try this brand new type of Throwie: Throw it at the opening weekend of Club Transmediale and get your hands dirty for the “Illuminations of Wedding” show at SUPERMARKT.

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).
