If you're looking for something new and fun to make, and have some time to spare then create havoc in the office or at home with an Arduino-powered rubber band turret gun. Capable of semi-and fully-automatic firing, it's controlled via a Nintendo Wii Nunchuk for intuitive attack control and a high "wow factor". It can be loaded with six bands at once, and using only three servos the gun can be aimed over two axes quite rapidly. Check it out in the following video:
