Injected notifications on the TV via Two Raspberry Pi's

Take two raspberry pi's and have one be the hdmi "in" and the other be the hdmi "out" (they could communicate over ethernet).  Place this between your TV and your input and inject information on the screen such as notification bubbles.

Edit: Using a hdmi hub would probably be simpler, but not as cool.

Edit2: Using a HDMI splitter and a single raspberry pi run led's around the back of your tv and using the input of the hdmi light up the led's.  like http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LOxKkf8LrbU&list=PLFD09F92CF1DF3FBE, but without having to have a dedicated computer or only working from output coming from the computer.

organize board games board game

Make a board game where the point is to organize a bunch of board games on shelves made for books.  Points for style, fit, access, grouping etc.  Bonus karma points for taking a picture and putting it online for other board game players to see and vote up.
