Top 10 Arduino Projects On Instructables:

 

10. Arduino sunflower:

Arduino Sunflower – an Electronic Sundancer

OBJECTIVE: To build an Arduino-Servo controlled mechanism that follows the sun as it moves in the horizon.

Solar Panels can be attached to the front so that maximum sunlight get absorbed by them at any instant. Since Arduino-Sunflower acts like a real Sunflower in presence of sunlight, it is called an electronic Sundancer!
