    Whether you call them "blinkies", "throwies", "sparklers", or anything else, LED art is an interesting nexus of street art and hacker culture. Events such as DEFCON even have exhibitions for the most creative blinky designs while maker storefronts sell them in every conceivable shape. In this video, Matt collaborates with his friends at the National Upcycled Computing Collective to build a solar-powered "smart" blinky that not only looks cool at night, but contributes its computing power to a worldwide network that's looking for disease cures, extraterrestrial intelligence, rogue asteroids, and more!
