Build the "Machine of Answers"

Sometimes you may find yourself not being able to make a decision - or give the right answer to someone else. Thus a random answer could be suitable, and to choose on consider making the machine described by Instructables user "bissaorboea". They have build a device that holds square 80 x 80 mm cards - each printed with an answer of wit, comedy or wise. These cards can be rotated at speed using an Arduino-based motor control system and thus randomly selecting a card when it stops. The framework has been created with a 3D printer and results with an interesting project, for example:

You could also make a really large flip-clock with four of these. Nevertheless, visit the project page to get started. And for more, we're on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.

If you found the project above interesting - but not sure how to start with Arduino, then the best way to learn is with our Experimenter's Kit for Arduino:

The package includes a wide variety of parts, sensors and modules including: a servo motor, lights, buttons, switches, sound, sensors, breadboard, wires and more. Furthermore a Freetronics Eleven Arduino-compatible board is included to make this an extensive hobby experimenter, inventor and starter kit. However we don't leave you alone to figure it all out, included is a great project and instruction booklet, plus access to a supporting web page and software examples. In other words - this is everything you need to get started for a fun range of electronics and Arduino related projects! 

So to get started or for more information and to order, check out the product page.
