Is a good project for a professional hobbyist. Due to three infrared emitting diodes and once infrared receiving module, this robot is capable of sending and receiving signals and detecting obstacles. It can “think” and process any information related to its environments.
This transparent tiny robotic mouse doesn’t require any programming; however, some soldering is needed. This is an excellent line follower. It uses a set of three IR infrared reflection sensors to see the line being followed.
Three LED indicators will show you what this robotic mouse is seeing, and two will show you the status of motors. If you want to start or stop the mouse, you just need to clap or tap its body. This tiny robot is powered by four AA batteries, which are not a part of the set. You need to buy them separately.
Jameco Kitpro CJKIT-20817 LED Cube Kit 8x8 x8 Size – Great Kit For Advanced Users
If you love soldering and are prepared to spend hours on the project, go for 8x8x8 LED Cube by Jameco. Based on Arduino Uno, this advanced level kit requires not only a certain knowledge but patience as well. You are supposed to lay out all the components on a blank protoboard and after that make all necessary interconnections either with wire or solder.
As a result, you are going to have a LED Cube with stunning hypnotic effect: lights dancing in mesmerizing patterns. The Cube comes in three different colors: blue, green and white.
Note: If you think that you are not yet ready for a such complicated project, you can buy an easier-to-built White 8x8x8 LED Cube with PCB by Jameco. I would call this PCB version an intermediate kit. It features two custom PCBs allowing you to build the kit much easier. The only thing you need to do is to install the components and build the cube since the PCB already has the circuit traces laid out.
Below is a demo video of the LED cube in action:
