My office had halogen spotlights that were too bright, hard to replace bulbs in, and looked horrible on video conferences. I found some cheap RGB LED strips on eBay, and things kind of snowballed from there.
Parts list: 2x 5050 SMD 5m RGB 150 LED strips @ $20 each 2x 6A 12VDC power supplies @ $12 each 2x breadboard power jacks from Sparkfun @$0.95 6x MOSFETs from Digikey @ $1 each 1x Netduino Plus @$60 100 lines of C# for the Netduino 100 lines of C# for the Outlook mail notifier 20 lines of AutoIt script for the IM notifier
Total ~$130 bucks for much improved lighting and some geek cred.
