Throw in a small bank dye bag for ID, maybe a bright pink?
I'm just gonna step out and say that this is a far-fetched idea. Getting mugged isn't a game. If you're at the point where you can't draw, you're essentially at the mercy of the attacker, and a blinking LED light isn't your ticket out. If you're spending this much money, just keep a wallet with some cash in it and the guy will (hopefully) be happy to score the $100.
Think about it: if you mugged someone, would you let your guard down when they gave you the wallet? Would you even look in it? I'm not sure how criminals think, but I'm pretty sure that a firecracker wallet or a blinking light is a good way to get beat up / killed while they go over you to find the real wallet.
I can come up with a scenario where it would work, but it's awfully James Bond. Neat idea in principle, but IMHO it would really only work if you could get a proper flash-bang grenade in there.
My wallet? You bet, it's right back here next to my kidney..."Oh-oh, looks like you've attracted the cops, here they come."
I'm not playing any wallet games...either the BG is going to get my wallet, or he is not!
In 10 robbery attempts, all will go differently...hard to judge any scenario until you're there. (I'm speaking from 'no experience', thank God!)
Stay armed...be alert...don't go to stupid places...stay safe!

if I was stealing a wallet, I wouldn't look in it while I was still holding someone up. I would take it and run. Why not keep your cards and cash seperate that way if some does get the drop on you, you can give them your money and not your ID. I have always done this. This is of course assuming you somehow got held at gunpoint with no chance to defend yourself. I probably would not try to draw on someone who already had a gun on me. This is pretty much asking for a worse case scenario. Every situation is different though.
The Problem: When stupid people do stupid things, smart people end up getting killed.
oh well it would still work to find out who in my unit keeps "borrowing" small amounts of cash from me.

Every well-bred petty crook knows: the small concealable weapons always go to the far left of the place setting.

Take a trip to your local magic supply store, they can rig something up easy. Little flash paper and some smoke powder.
All the magicians at my local magic shop are shooters, and they're pretty good, too. Must be all the hand-eye coordination from all the sleight of hand tricks.
I can just see a mistake happening, at a nice fancy restaurant with your date, or wife, and you go to pay the check, and wham!

If we are going into the world of bang/flash wallets, why not make a taser wallet, that when they pick it up it tases them into unconsciousness, maybe continues to shock until the batteries are dead, now that would be funny.

It would be cool, until your wife needed to snag a $20...
