Christmas is coming closer, so here is my contribution to put you in the right mood.

It is a blog hitcounter, that rings a bell. Literally. It puts a smile on your face, every time someone hits your blog. And it is a great way to annoy your colleages or your girl friend.

It consists of an Arduino board, a bell, a servo and a couple of lines of code in c, python and php.

HOW TO – Make an Arduino XMAS hitcounter – Link.

    Muhaha. That’s great.

    I’d be getting ~12.5 rings/hour though, I think that’s bordering on annoyance.

    Great project, but seriously, that is the most annoying video ever. Lose the music and explain what you did.

    Hey, I’m shy. Maybe next time.
