You might hook up a RockBLOCK Mk2 and send (rate-limited) high score updates. You might also offer a reward to high scorers like sending a short text message over the Mk2 (if the dark node would be in a location without wifi or cellular). Finally, you might create a distributed network of puzzle boxes that form a larger puzzle requiring remote collaboration to solve. For instance, the boxes might be “entangled” so that the compartment which is openable depends on remote state.

What about a plant tender robot? Watering, fertilization, pest monitoring/control, lighting? There is an interesting Public Lab project that might be useful.
Yeah, I often wish for a combination of smart exterior shutters and interior curtains, deployed only when no one is around in order to control heat transfer.
It would be neat (in a kind of flashy-plus-silly way) to have a camera that identified people in the room and moved a few small plates in front of the window to keep the sun out of their eyes while leaving the bulk of the window unshaded.
What, the huge robotic cooking arms aren’t enough? :-)

Perhaps you are thinking of this research? Except it is UC Berkeley and graphene transistors, not IBM and GaAs. But it, too, claims to prolong Moore’s Law. I sure hope it’s time to get back on the roller coaster and start screaming.
No public wish lists :(
