At the risk of sounding like a dodgy bugger.. Here's a rather unusual use I found for my Controller.
I have three kids.. and to ease the number of chores (and to improve general household sanity), my wife and I agreed to get a cleaner once a week for three hours to .. well .. clean.
Recently I've noticed that the house has been less clean.. (probably because I'm on paternity leave with too much time on my hands)..
So I called to make sure the cleaner was .. well .. cleaning and found that the cleaner wasn't really at our house for the full three hours.. closer to one hour the time I rang..
I mentioned to the cleaner that I think it might be appropriate to .. well.. clean for the three hours instead of one.
who cares I hear you say.. well.. now comes the interesting bit.
Being a little peeved, I attached my Controller to the inside of the front door, knowing that the handy inbuilt accelerometer will notice any door movements during the day.
When I get home I check the log to discover that the cleaner has only .. well.. cleaned .. for about an hour and a half.
Who would have thought that I could use my Controller as an employee monitoring device.
Needless to say I'm looking for a new cleaner.

That's nothing. He then modified the code on the controller to automatically start playing on full volume a sound clip he had recorded the night before:
"GET BACK TO WORK"
the minute the cleaner opened the door.
And that's not all. It also makes coffee now.
