I've made something for my desk at work.

I bought a reindeer made from twigs and some battery powered lights that spell out 'happy Christmas'.  
I programmed my adruino to play Christmas tunes (available in another thread) and flash the lights when you press a button.  I then put the arduino in a box and wrapped it up like a present.  It takes its power from USB so I can plug it in to my PC at work.

Here's a low quality video of it:

I did have an LED display showing "n DAYS UNTIL CHRISTMAS!" but I guess I ran out of memory cos I couldn't get it and the tunes working at the same time.



Customised presents!.  Cool.


Nice job.  I'm going to do something similar but for our front door using a wreath.
