Found this on /. (yeah I know, geek), basically two freshmen from MIT have automated their dorm room with security system, automated blinds and 'Party mode' button. Hit the big red button and the lights dim, blinds go down, lasers turn on, and music starts going. Wonder if we could rig up a block or corimec to do the same. http://web.mit.edu/zacka/www/midas.html - scroll down for the two videos of party mode being engaged.
