I have this primal urge to get a Raspberry Pi, a BeagleBoard, a handful of bluetooth stamps, now also that Sparks.io, a Nymi band, the Myo armband, an Oculus Rift, some old linux based phones (Like the Nokia N900) as web servers (just because) and do something awesome with it…
But then I remember I’m no hard core engineer and it would just end in tears. :)
I, too, am itching to get a Nymi band, and most of the other stuff you mentioned. As I said (at least on my blog), I’m a hardware freak. I just haven’t the time for it all like I want. I should send you some Sun SPOTs. They help turn hardware projects into software projects. :-)
I have settled for finished products like Sonos and LIFX at home, and I have orderd a set of https://bt.tn/ to turn what was once controlled by a button into something that can be controlled by a bttn. The irony!
