What electronic Kits do you want to see?

I've decided to call my company electroni-C, see more in the market place for more info on that, and I'm post this here in the Tech section cause to be quite honest nobody looks at the marketplace.

I've decided to outsource the PCBs for kits to another company cause my CNC machine is taking longer than I thought (thing after thing just keeps going wrong!)

anyways, I'm running low on cash, so I've decided to go onto phase 2 and start selling kits, but I just want to hear ideas of what people want.

examples of succesful kits:
TV-B-GONE
Boarduino
various arduino clones
mintyboost
basically everything made by ladyada, lol

in short


if you have any ideas for a kit please post.

If I decide to go with your idea I will give the idea's creator a couple of kits for free (for you and some friends to make)

BTW it can be just an idea, no schematics or anything needed.
so if you are a beginner at electronics just fire off ideas

How about hooking up a disposable cell phone to a deadbolt lock, so that you can call you door to lock or unlock your lock?

just so you know there's no winner yet, but if noone posts anything else I might have to decide on the suggested few... DEADLINE: August First

10/100 network addressable and powered RGB, LED lights Would be killer, and they would make the neatest christmas light on the market... you could daisy chain them into a whole house TV like Deck the halls movie ..... RFID kits would be cool to ....

I looked into mini robots stuff, and I contacted a bunch of different websites (the motors have to be tiny and gearhead) and the pricing just wouldn't be practical. The electronic lock idea is great and all, but I don't know how to get all of the buttons easily... actually I could just use tactile switches, so the lock idea is still good mini breadboard powersupplies: not worth a custom PCB to be quite honest audio amp: good if enough people are interested Music LEDs: I'm good with this USB charger: only if people are interested POV: well, ladyada has a nice collection... lol

Oh, you bet, i'll challenge LinuxH4x0r
make:
variable voltage psu(s)
7-10 WATT audio amps
audio (dancing) lights as, of course, a link
USB 4-AA charging kits

and, that's about all that i can think of atm.

I might make mini powersupplies, but those can be easily made out of parts from a junk box. I need a kit that make the customer think that they could just build it themselves, but then get lazy and just buy the kit (LOL) Audio amp sounds pretty good I dont really want to make a USB charger unless it has somthing special, I might dig up my lion USB idea, which basically is the size of a minty boost, but it has an insane amount of power, about 4x more batter life than a minty boost, but the PCB got so complex and squished I abandoned it... Another idea I have is wireless electricity, I'm researching heavily on this. I might make a kit for that Sound reactive leds has always been a favorite of mine and was on my list of kits I might create, I'll upload the list tomorow, as I'm typing on my iPod right now.
don't go with Li-ion, you have to make a charger,

wireless electricity = inefficiency + heat

minty boosts are cool, but they send out anooying frequency, (unless all the electronics are shielded)

I had a built in charger that could charge off USB wireless electricity with resonance is actually pretty efficient and not too much heat
really? did it come in a kit?
