Programmable LED

A microcontroller-controlled LED inspired by various LED Throwies, blinking LEDs, and similar Instructables By Alexander Weber

Inspired by many LED Throwies and other LED projects on Instructables, I wanted to do my version of an LED controlled by a microcontroller.

The idea is to make the LED blinking sequence reprogrammable with light and shadow, e.g., you could use your flashlight. You can see a video that demonstrates how to reprogram it here: http://9600baud.blip.tv/file/198088.
