Nifty things: the Ambient Dashboard.

How cool is this? The Ambient Executive Dashboard is an analog device that receives a wireless signal to display the current status of three different elements, such as the value of your stock portfolio. It's not as cool as it could be, because their business model doesn't include just the hardware, but a monthly charge for the wireless signal. This seems silly to me; it'd be infinitely better if it could simply be configured to read data off a local server and your local 802.11x network. Still, a cool little device.
