On the Anniversary of the Lite Brite Bomb Scare, LED Panels Return to Boston, But This Time, the Threat Is Real

Was it only a year ago that deadly Lite Brites stormed Boston, ravaging our national security and shutting down the city for a day? The ensuing madness that followed the invasion of Mooninites was dubbed 1/31, and a very clever group of people have vowed that Boston will never forget.

Make has got the skinny on the fan art plastering Boston today, which hopefully this time officials will not confuse with detonation devices (one helpfully reads “This is not a bomb”). There’s Bush and Bin Laden and also some very clever homages to the masterminds behind the original 1/31, Peter Berdovsky and Sean Stevens, who last year gave what was possibly the greatest press conference of all time.
