Using some polyfill stuffing and a basic Arduino circuit, Instructables user “dablondeemu” created a project for a class which is incredibly simply – yet visually stunning. It’s simply an Arduino controlling a variety of LEDs, and with the use of an infra-red receiver it can be controlled remotely (for example, from a ceiling). This would be a great project to share with younger people or introduce someone to the world of Arduino:

If this type of project interests you and you’re new to the Arduino world, check out our new Experimenter’s Kit for Arduino:
The package includes a wide variety of parts, sensors and modules including: a servo motor, lights, buttons, switches, sound, sensors, breadboard, wires and more. Furthermore a Freetronics Eleven Arduino-compatible board is included to make this an extensive hobby experimenter, inventor and starter kit. However we don’t leave you alone to figure it all out, included is a great project and instruction booklet, plus access to a supporting web page and software examples. In other words – this is everything you need to get started for a fun range of electronics and Arduino related projects!
