Picture of LED Pattern Hat
This is a (moderately) simple Arduino project that is a spectacular display from LEDs - that you can wear on your head! It also uses a program that is not intricate at all, so you can modify it for different patterns and cycles. It's also a great first or second project for people new to Arduino. And, of course, it looks great in the dark!

(I know the video isn't ideally situated; I'll try to fix that soon)

Very nice project, it's is a real tinkering project. Good for dark nights in the winter, also because the over-heated ATMega will keep extra your warm :-)
