Boomerang with LED lights? Bet the Aborigines wish they'd thought of that!


I’d love to see the faces of some Aboriginal elders when they watch this LED boomerang in action for the first time – I wonder if they’d be like proud fathers watching their kid learn to walk, or shaking their head in disgust at what was once a way of catching prey for survival turn into a form of entertainment for the 21st Century.

American Eric Darnell has recently shown off his latest invention, a foam boomerang called the ‘Scimitar’ which has been affixed with LED lights. As you can tell from the picture, when thrown, the boomerang is tracked through the air by the blue LEDs. Beautiful.
