Arduino/Lego Automatic Blinds

This project was inspired by my indoor plant. The blinds automatically tilt open when light is sensed in the morning and stays open for a couple of hours. The arduino used runs a simple program whilst attached to a light sensor. When light is detected in the early hours of the day (6am) my blinds automatically open with the help of a lego motor. After a couple of hours when my plant has soaked up the sun's goodness , the arduino closes the blinds again.
