One problem with this suggestions is that many such problems will
depend on parts that are no longer readily available.  Of course,
many of us are reasonably prepared to track-down vintage parts.  But,
that may put many such projects just beyond the reach of practicality.

I have thought that it might be interesting to investigate some
current device made for use in robotics, r/c models, or other more
current geek hobby activities.  You might even include writing Nitros-9
drivers for such devices.

Of course (just like the TCP/IP stack) if I had time for this I would
have already done it... :-(  So, YMMV -- and I certainly do not want
to discourage anyone with my 'helpful' suggestions... :-)
