COMP444 Final Project Ideas

I was reading through the prof's Project Ideas blog and it sounds like they would be ok with me creating something using just the materials provided in the SIK, and it doesn't necessarily have to be a robot by definition! (Link:

Anyways I was thinking about some ideas; One is making a distance sensor (using ultrasound) and adding a LCD display to print the readings. Maybe I could add some pushbuttons and the ability to save a distance measurement, then display the delta on the LCD screen of the new distance measurement? Maybe I could add some LED's as well. Why not right?

Another option would be for me to create a RGB nightlight and add extra features like LED flash patterns, the LCD display, a clock display on the LCD (this seems challenging since I already tried to make something like this in the first SIK project that used the LCD), and an alarm function.

I'd like to do something with the DC geared motors or the Servo but I can't really think of anything cool at the moment. I have some ideas for that sort of thing but it would require lots of extra money (for materials and electronics) and would take me too long to build so I would miss the deadline. 

If anyone reads this, please let me know what you think!
