Wayne and Layne have put up a nice series of photos and instructions on building the BlinkyPOV, ala LadyAda over at Adafruit. Following these instructions and using a reasonable soldering iron (not a hot pointy death stick like I learned on), my 14 year old assembled the BlinkyPOV in about a half hour, maybe a little longer with some Q & A. We took the assembled BlinkyPOV, added batteries, and bada-bing, symbols and words flashing through the air. It was pretty cool. We high fived and buttoned up for the night with a win.
