The ambient ORB

Reading Michael Swanson's post on Continuous Integration and has some info on the Ambient Orb, this thing sits on your desk and via a URL that then radios your Orb and can glow what ever color you want, Michael has it doing the following.

Now, when the build breaks and the Orb pulses red, it’s like a fire alarm around here. The first question out of everyone’s mouth is “who broke it?” After appropriate developer guilt has been piled on by the development team (all in good fun, of course), it’s usually a relatively trivial matter to discover and fix the problem

Love it :)
