Seeing things, wanting things...(mostly pi)

I have been aware of the Raspberry Pi for quite some time, but I only saw one in person tonight. I want one. It's funny how seeing something tangible sometimes makes me want it more than just being interested in it conceptually. Another example: lightsaber replicas. Along these same lines, I hope I never meet Jeremy Irons...

Anyway, it seems like a fascinating project component. I certainly don't need any new hobbies or projects ... in my copious spare time, I help plan an international fantasy/sci-fi/concept/etc art convention (I'll probably post about this here one of these days) so I'm definitely keeping busy ... it's just that this is such an appealing intersection of cheap and technical and *interesting* that it's going to be hard for me to just pass on it.

Now I'm trying to figure out what I'd do with it. And, of course, what to do about the enclosure. (Legos. Obviously Legos.)
