A possible cool application for these devices is the "Freedom Box".

Which is a concept described by Eben Moglen for a appliance device which 
will improve freedom by de-centralizing various cloud services, and 
providing various privacy enhancing capabilities.

He has talked about this in a few places, and videos are available:

A starting point already exists in the Debian wiki, and includes lots of
