At CSCS last week, Brad suggested a fun project: getting occamnet to run on the Lego occam system they'd built, so you could interact with a robot using IP. I suspect this'd be extremely difficult:

A better approach might be to port one of the existing tiny IP stacks instead, and build an occamnet-lookalike interface to it.

It would be extremely cool to build robots that could communicate using Lego light bricks and light sensors -- they could flash Morse-code messages at each other! (Or even flash patterns that other robots of the same type could recognise...)
