    The Klackerlake (clanking bug) is a special kind of vermin, an invasive species, and a pest indeed: A mobile LED-Throwie, equipped with poisonous button cells, whose remains might outlive us. The first specimens of this solderless Vibrobot-LED-Throwie crossbreed were sighted at the Chaos Communication Camp in Finowfurt in the summer of 2011. Due to the fact that initially mainly bottle caps, especially CLUB MATE caps, were infested, the new pest was at first called MATErlaken. Other popular names include Drinken Lights, or in German, Kronemänner. Only months later, the glowing bugs could be found in Kulturhaus Abraxas during the lab.30 festival. Within few days, they had invaded their new habitat, clanking and buzzing around. The project was inspired by Graffiti Research Lab's LED-Throwies and Evil Mad Scientist's Bristlebot. Thanks to Verena Hafner, Stefanie Koch, Pierre Pronchery, Alexander Schmidt, and Barbara Friedrichs. http://meyleankronemann.de/klackerlaken/
