DroidOrb is an extensible, open source Android accessory. In it's barest form, it is a bedside or table-top dock for your Android phone that will charge the phone, and provide external notifications via it's "orb", which is a translucent white ball containing RGB and white LED's. The orb will glow and pulsate in various colours depending on the configuration of the DroidOrb app on the phone, and is used primarily for alerting the user to notifications such as missed calls, missed e-mails, etc. It is also extensible via simple modules to allow your docked phone to integrate with other systems, e.g. panic button, alarm system, home automation, etc. See website for details.

Other nifty features include (some still under development):
- Night mute: automatically mute your phone (with exceptions) when the lights are turned off
- Anti-theft: if the user does not unlock the screen within 5 seconds of undocking the device, a loud alarm will sound continuously.
- Panic button module: hold down the panic button for 5 seconds and the phone will send emergency SMS to predefined numbers and call the Emergency number

It currently uses ADB, so you will need to enable "USB debugging" in order to connect to the accessory. ADK support coming soon.
