It's an ambient orb style pulsating pig!
that's it... really. but i learned to read digital and analog pins, and how to write to the analog out pins, and before that the digital ones. Woot!
yeah, i know, the video isn't that impressive, but what's going on there is there's an analog voltage output going up and down between 0 and +5. at a specific rate. When i press the switch which you can barely see, that rate doubles. It's your basic hello world.. with a glowing pig!
