Green projects: anything that saves energy or resources, creates renewable energy, reduces waste, reduces consumption, even projects built from recycled material. i guess fungus already suggested 'green xmas', so this just expands it a bit.

Well, you already had a magnet theme. Lessee... - LEDs - portable electronics - USB powered - audio spectrum: from noise to relaxation - food recipes and hacks - office weaponry (with macro photos!) - photomagraphicalism (pictures) - the holidays

Subthemes for the holidays: - Thrifty Gifter: cheap and cool presents that don't feel or look cheap - A Green Christmas: In honor of Gore being recruited by the UK to speak on the climate this theme would be for people who wanted to create non-wasteful decorations or create gifts with a minimum of trash and/or a maximum of recycling

I like the "Thrifty Gifter" idea, but I would like November's contest to not be holiday themed.

mmm HPVs :P wait to you see what comes out of this year's HPV team at my school. We found something called the K-drive two years ago -- and finally some R&D; is being put into making it better and lighter :)

I think a "Household Machines" would be cool. Building things from things only around the house. I built a catapult out of a bent clothes hanger. Works well. (I didn't use it to shoot candy at the trick-or-treaters... )

Improvised tools.... Certain jobs require the right tool... unfortunately, the right tool is at the wrong price and way out of the budget. There's a few already on instructables.... like the 30ton press, the bike cup press and the ABS clamps.... I can't think of anything I'd make at the moment, but these things benefit a lot of people :)
