The Bigger Design presents there Sentinel project. They strapped a NERF BFG on a homebrew swivel stand, hooked up some wires with an Arduino board, slapped a webcam on top, and brought it all together with an Adobe AIR application to make it sing.

Here is a great tip to be able to preview your AS code in quicklook in Snow Leopard. It even supports colours!!
Download and install this http://code.google.com/p/qlcolorcode/
Then go into the package file of this plugin and edit the plist file and edit the top part so it looks like this
<key>LSItemContentTypes</key>
<array>
<string>public.source-code</string>
<string>com.apple.applesingle-archive</string>
<string>public.archive.applesingle</string>

<string>public.xml</string>
<string>com.apple.property-list</string>
<string>org.tug.tex</string>
<string>public.plain-text</string>
</array>

Now you can change your file associations to textedit or any other text tool and now you have cool quicklook for your as files
