Android @ Home (Home Automation)
Home Automation (HA) has been around for awhile but it hasn't breached the mainstream consumer market. That's about to change as Google has just announced Android @ Home, an automation system that will run though Android phones. The system would allow you to control lights with special light-bulbs and possibly other household appliances. The application of algorithms to make your home “smart' also could be implemented; scheduling lights to turn on or off based on calendar events or schedules, etc.
