Glowing Gremlin Egg

Turn an ordinary chicken egg into a glowing gremlin egg! Watch the video to get started.

The "Glowing Gremlin Egg" uses the Arduino board, its cable, and a little bit of code that fades the power to the LED up and down. The more power the LED receives the brighter it is, the less power it receives the dimmer it is. This simple idea is the basis of a strange and mystical fantasy foetus.
