Morgan's arts and craft box got a good first outing, this robot wants to be a skier just like the one in Wallace and Gromits Grand Day Out.

We've been working on this for a while, and my mind has been racing with all the cool things that you can do with a solid Ubuntu underneath, a store and access to all kinds of small hardware and sensors.
I've been tinkering to get my electric blinds hooked up to a relay, an arduino and talking to a BeagleBone Black via radio, to then control them from a Snappy app that provides APIs and a WebUI to phones and computers in my home.
I've been making some good progress, see the video of the Arduino driving the blinds.
Next up, hook up the relay to the beaglebone and decide whether to drive it directly from there and re-wire all the blinds in the house, or buy a dozen super cheap arduinos with radio receivers.
It feels like a big overkill to have an arduino per window, but it may still be cheaper than re-wiring.
Either way, having an OS that I like (Ubuntu!), that I can keep safely updated and in the network (Snappy!) and a software store to let others easily grab my app and use it, is going to make a very automatable 2015 for me  :)
