Very good project.
What do the voice commands do, and what did you use for that function, PC or Arduino?

Very nice example!

Made me look for a tutorial. smiley

Bet making those paper "flakes" took longer than the wiring! smiley

Maybe one of these

with a rotary encoder attached to the gear(s)?

120 Dollars for something that vibrates every five minutes?

And they sold out!, some people have too much disposable income!!

AtTiny85 + vibration motor + Ipod Nano watch strap = a lot less than $120!

I wish KiCad had a "proper" forum instead of a Yahoo group.

Clones are almost always OK.  Best I can figure, they are made by the same people, same sweatshops that made the TV in your living room.

The same reasons that would suggest clones do not work OK, would apply equally to said TV.

(Yes, I've had to return an IKEA TV for exchange.)

IKEA TV??, was it flat-pack?  smiley-grin

Possible to build one (with less "pixels") to start with?

No kinect, just an arduino and lots and lots of servos. smiley

How would you do it? smiley

Describes why (composite) video is more complicated than audio.

That's a concept picture and not available as far as I know.

Maybe if enough people want this (and why not?) Adafruit could easily produce something like this.

Starting point for this project I would guess, is a raspberry pi with suitable video player software that can be controlled by a (python?) script.

Depending on what type of control inputs you have, you could use the GPIO pins on the Pi or a separate arduino board.

Asking this question on the Pi forum is the best way to do this.

If you just want an easy way to transfer your breadboard design to something more permanent, then this is for you.
http://proto-pic.co.uk/adafruit-perma-proto-full-sized-breadboard-pcb-3-pack/

You will need a basic arduino circuit like this
http://www.instructables.com/id/Perfboard-Hackduino-Arduino-compatible-circuit/
to start with, then add the other components from your breadboard.

If you want a "proper" PCB for your project, then you'd need to learn eaglecad or kicad design software.

Another alternative is http://fritzing.org/ where you can have a PCB produced from the breadboard design software.
