Because I have always been fascinated with blinky, shiny, light-y things, my first real project will be a series of experiments to build LED cubes. There are a number of excellent examples to learn from on Instructables.com (I am following the 4x4x4 and 8x8x8 projects by Chr). Once I can successfully replicate those projects, I plan to take them a step further, advancing their functionality with new features and adding a more interactive aspect to them.
My daughter ignited this new direction for me. She showed me a project she had stumbled across in her web travels (makeymakey.com), which led me to Arduino, which led me to an explosion of possible projects I could create with this platform.
It is awesome!
