Very cool. I wonder if he added glue or something to make them stick to the walls. Magnets would only work on metallic surfaces...

supposedly only magnets

Either way that's cool. I wonder how long the batteries last? LEDs don't really use much power (allot less than light bulbs, anyway...).

Do you think they could get a week or two out of those little things?

leds would way outlast the time it takes for someone to take em down. unfortunately.

they'd last years not weeks
