fireplacWe came across this fabulous Easy Programmable EL-Wire Wall Art Project with Cool-Neon Instructable that uses our Cool Neon Arduino Shield.

This is the first paragraph of the Instructable, describing the project:

Blank space, what to do?, what to do?
Our hackerspace has a blank brick wall above the fireplace. It’s been a cold winter so we’ve had a fair number of fires, but there is just something wrong about a blank brick wall. Well in this project I’ll document how to create an animated, Arduino controlled, EL-Wire design mounted in a picture frame, sure to spiff up any lonely chunk of wall space. I’ll go beyond just powering the lights and show how you can control up to 10 different segments of your picture using an aCool-Neon Arudino Shield and a bit of open source software.

We think it is pretty cool and we bet you will too. Thanks to mazzmn for the great project.
