Essentially, this device randomly generates a color, then fades to it. More info on the guts in the code section.
You will need:
- Some Jumper wires
- One RGB Led, center cathode, or three red, green, and blue LEDS.
- A 220Ohm resistor
- A solderless breadboard, or just skill with Perfboards/PCB's
- An arduino, or an ATtiny by Atmel (xBacon knows about these)
- Eyes (to look at it)
- Optional: A sheet of paper
Step 1: Wire Up the Led

Computerized Waterlubber to Noob translation:
This device generates three random numbers for the brightness of each color: Red, Green, and Blue
Then it fades each color indivdually to get to the new 'overall' color.
Finally it waits a random time before it repeats!
