Glowing LED "orb" changes color in response to external events, like the =
stock market's rise/fall.

Changes color by commands from a "nationwide wireless network" -- =
there's a web interface so you can tell it to change color in response =
to something you care about, or it can track the dow jones.

Bizaare.  I want one -- I could hook it up to the response time for my =
server....

Less fun was a suggestion to change the orb's color based on the state =
of the terror alert status.
