Finding an interesting, original application for one of these that is not already done by an existing piece of kit is the hard bit.

All I can come up with is a non-invasive way of making antique clocks like a grandfather clock accurate by mounting a pi-based unit on the pendulum which listens to the clock ticking and an accurate radio time standard like MSF, and by winding itself up and down the pendulum, phase locking it to the standard.

I suspect the Pi might be a bit big though, and too power hungry. Atmel make really nice low-power microcontrollers that would do the job just fine. I have all I need to make it except a nice but not very accurate old clock however!

And I can't see it addressing a mass market either!

Handy to know :-) I have one collecting dust in my cupboard ATM I tried it and there a few things i couldn't get my head round mainly accessing the internet and uploading vids to you tube. Think tho OS is the xbox type one so I'll have a look at it again and come back with clearer questions ;-)

It's probably Linux. Doing anything under Linux is like kicking a dead whale along a beach.
