Projects I am currently contemplating:

1. Using an Arduino and a moisture detector so that I know when to water my plants: Garduino: Gardening + Arduino and DIY Arduino-Based Plant Moisture Sensor.

2. Modifying a camera for infrared: IR Modification of the Nikon 4300.

3. Using a pinhole camera to make solargraphs: Solagraph Instructions.

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?
