Serial LCD Ideas

I was wondering about what I could do with a normal 16x2 serial LCD. Like what kind of projects do you think would be fun? A video game?

shorts out components one by one, letting you get many more ideas then before. of course, the robot, smarter then us, would be seperate from the circuit of the shorting


 I'm assuming all that smoking is what got the Arduino into space!


I just got me a 4x20 LCD, lol so far I've scrolled some text and even danced with it! I've got it setup to run with the 4 Data pins(4-7) connected, I'm assuming that's why my LCD only let's me run half-LCD'd, having half of the datapins connected. I could be wrong, haha I'm a bit confused when it comes to code. It'll scroll the top line, skip the second line, and scroll on the third! Fail.. lol

 But I just bought a couple set of RF Transmitter/receivers from Seeedstudio, hopefully gonna use a pair of those and my old 168 chip, and use it for a wireless Crap-talker, so I can talk crap to anyone sitting upstairs :D


Smoking and a 4x20 LCD. Can't you just picture the 'bot Cheech and Chong would come up with.

I see what you did there!!!
too many "ideas" :D
Perfect! Maybe as an April Fool's I'll stick it on my parent's door! Just I don't think it will really talk crap... not the smartest thing, but maybe an animation of some sorts...
chris already sold me his beer variety pack! :P or should I say- "Chris' Best Beer Bargain" :D
Try alcohol... Or pot, whatever is your choice... One or the other should get you where you need to be in terms of ideas.
Quit corrupting the children! LOL
I think he meant shorting a potentiometer until it smokes.
