Nirzaree has created colourful piece of art work that uses a very simple form of touch-sensor as input, and illuminates various parts of the external art as output. Although a simple use for an Arduino board, the project is a good example of something that can be built with younger children or absolute beginners to the craft. Here it is in action:
Although a normal-sized Arduino compatible board was used for the project, something smaller would be advantageous - such as our Freetronics LeoStick. It is one of the smallest Arduino-compatible boards on the market with full USB, an RGB LED and a piezo:
