Well if you have the money, you can get a super capacitor and some high voltage/current regulators. The super capacitors are dangerous to use so wear rubber gloves when handling them, and make sure the wires are isolated until needed.

You don't need an Arduino for this - here's a project that might interest you: http://www.ladyada.net/make/mintyboost/. How about building a solar powered one?
