Paintball-sized foam balls, the same mass as standard garden-variety welt-making devices. Contains 6 orthogonally-oriented leds powered by a small battery.
Mix them into your hoppers, but not until you pull the plastic interruptor out of each one you intend to use - thereby allowing the circuit
to be completed and powering up the lights.
Not recommended for nighttime use if you have a clear paintball hopper - your gun will light up like a christmas tree. A christmas tree that wants to be shot.
