Starter project: Electronic Die
For my starter project i built the electronic die kit from spikenzielabs their site is http://www.spikenzielabs.com/Catalog/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=35&products_id=278 . The die uses LEDs to simulate the way a real die would look. To activate the die one would simply tap it on his/her hand. This youtube video explains the way it works. Although I accidentally dropped it and doesn’t want to work anymore it did. There also is one bad connection somewhere so I had to use the soldering iron to touch a certain spot to give it a jump start.
