I want to create a dimmer circuit.  ie the Arduino controls the intensity of a standard AC bulb over time.  The method of control (PWM vs DAC) will depend on the hardware circuit, and the light should not flicker.  I was almost thinking of buying a rotary dimmer switch and attaching a servo to it but I figured there had to be a better way.  Any ideas?

thanks
