Build your own Arduino-based fortune teller

 Using an Arduino, LCD and an accelerometer, 'alecnotalex' has created a simple and fun "Magic Eight Ball" fortune teller. By shaking the device, it randomly selects a phrase to display on the LCD, similar to the liquid "eight balls" of the past. See it in action in the following video:

Another fun and simple project made easy with the Arduino ecosystem. To get started, you can find the instructions and code here.  If you were looking to recreate this project, it could be reduced in size very well by using a Freetronics Eleven board, one of our LCD Display Keypad shields, and mounted on a protoshield - our AM3X: accelerometer module:
