Default Raspberry Pi 3, now what

So I finally decided to buy a raspberry pi 3 the other day. Loaded an OS from the NOOBS menu (Raspian I think), but trying to figure out what to do next.

So what all have you guys done with your Raspberry Pi's.

Someone at work suggested getting several and making a Maria or Mongo DB cluster. No thanks, don't need that, lol.

I've built several things with them:

Several small mail/web/ftp servers just playing around
HoneyPot (Kippo)
Sprinkler System controller (Opensprinkler)
Controller for smoking on my BGE (HeaterMeter) - left this one together and still use it.
FlightAware ADS-B receiver - this one is still up and running as well.

There are tons of cool projects out there ...
