A couple projects  
First project was putting linux onto a Hitachi Visionplate tablet. It went very well but i'm still having a problem writing large files :/ Here's a picture of it..

The second project is very exciting. I'm making a handheld communication device of sorts. Can't give away too many details yet though. What you see is an LCD with touchscreen, an Xbee, and a rechargable battery pack.. driven by an arduino. I'm calling it the "Zed-Day coordinator". A commo tool that has no centralized infrastructure and resembles bittorrent in a few ways.

So when Z-day comes and everything collapses, you can still have a usable communication system! Reality check, hah.. or you can just use it to talk with your friends :)

Just wanted to say, before anyone asks (if anyone cares).. the touchscreen isn't plugged in, in that picture. The LCD is running a built in demo, not the communication software. I was just very excited to get those bits together and wanted to share, hah. After i get the software more functional i'll post more.. promise.
