No, I meant maybe you could add coloured LEDs to your project and have them light up depending on how big a shake the sensor registers.

my university can't give me any led.....i must do something with these matereals(sensor+arduino only)

i have my mobile phone near the sensor and when it is vibrating the output voltage is the same like before.. =(

Well, sensors by their very nature don't "do" anything, they "sense".... then you need an actuator to be the "do-er" based on what you sense. For example, you have a temperature sensor you say: well there's no point measuring the temperature if you don't act on that reading, eg switch the fan on if it's too hot.

But remember the Arduino has a built-in LED on pin 13- perhaps you could make that do something based on the readings
