Trag-

The world could use much more connectivity between Perl and a wide range of USB devices. In some cases drivers exist, but there is not easy access to them from Perl. This is somewhat OS dependent so don't expect high portability. A TK based tool for scraping data from an interesting web site, with frequent updates might be fun. (weather, stocks, news, Mars Rover updates...)

    Hmm, that sounds interesting. Are there any modules I should look at to get an idea of how to access USB devices?
