Build your own Arduino demo board    
Also known by the name Polyphemus Demonastration and Evalution Kit this project became a compulsion that cost three complete redesigns, five destroyed ATmega168s, and hundreds of hours of point-to-point wiring. The result was Polyphemus,an ATmega168 demo kit that can be built from your own spare parts box.  

Named after the gorgeous giant silk moth with large, colorful "eyespots" on its hind wings (Antheraea polyphemus), as well as the gigantic Cyclops who tormented Odysseus, this Polyphemus sports several exciting features:

ATmega 168 microcontroller (housed on a Freeduino board) 
color Nokia 6100 LCD 
two multi-state pushbuttons 
white LED 
piezoelectric buzzer 
3.7V rechargeable lithium battery 
analog input connector 
FTDI USB programming connector 
compact 3x3-inch handheld form factor

By using a 3.7V battery to power Polyphemus, no additional power regulators are needed. Also, no DC-DC boost converter is needed for powering the Freeduino and white LED.
