When I first got an Arduino, I made the LED blink and read about all the cool things I could do with it in Making Things Talk and in various Instructables. I also heard about all the exciting things people at BarCamps were doing with Ardunios, but still I ignored mine.

Today, I actually plugged it in again, and yes, again all I have done is make the LED flash, but now it flashes when people say certain things on Twitter. (I read Adrian McEwan's How to Build a Twitter-monitoring Alertuino and used the Alertuino code.) A flashing LED is not quite as fun as bubbles being automatically blown, but it is a start.

I thought about making an end of the world detector, but people talk about the end of the world far too frequently on Twitter. Maybe I need to add a Geiger counter?

More Arduino related ideas: Top 40 Arduino Projects of the Web. Botanicalls Twittering Plants would be useful as I have a tendency to over water my plants. High speed photography would help me create awesome photos.

Congrats!

Glad to see you didn't give up on the Arduino... it's a ton of fun. Now that you have LEDs blinking, you can move onto monkeys. :) http://rasterweb.net/raster/2010/11/11/twitter-monkey/
