I'm with you on the optics thought. I have lenses reclaimed from all kinds of torn-apart vintage photo equipment. Have you ever thought about making custom magnifying glasses? Or, mount the lens in a way that an image is projected to the focal point on a coffee table or wall. Just a light source and transparent image.

And I'm sure you could do something with the high quality glass optics from the leftover parts.
