Introduction: Cell Phone Penguin Loves You! Thing a Day - Day 1

Today I made a penguin that alights in joy when your cell phone rings. Okay okay, maybe only when my cell phone rings. And maybe it doesn't alight, but light up. And maybe I didn't make the penguin at all... but I did make it light up when my cell phone rings.

It uses an Arduino, an AQV210EH low-voltage relay and a hacked cell phone vibrating alert. It was a good excuse to figure out the Arduino, but I still rather use a PIC.

Anyways... enough of the technical.... See it for yourself!
