My Pis:
B+

Security Camera (w/Rpi cam), captures video and stills and automatically xfers them
(SCP) them to...

Pi2 = the "everything".

Runs web server with page showing security footage from B+
3 Foscams also upload an image on motion via their built-in FTP to Pi2, which then initiates a video stream capture (ffmpeg) from the Foscam and converts the video. Web page is set up to view footage as well
Sickrage / NZBGet / Deluge / Owncloud also run off Pi2, NZB/Deluge/Sickbeard xfers all go to separate HTPC that has shares for media (scripts run to wake the HTPC, xfer media, put it to sleep, etc.)
2.5" USB Hard Drive is hooked up to it for all the storage
OpenVPN server to connect Cell Phones/Tablets/etc. to home network when on public Wifi for secure connection + access to local resources when out
tons of other scripts (integrating it into Smart Thermostat via their API currently)

Pi3

IR adapter via GPIO pins so can control with Cable TV remote under "AUX" function.
Runs OSMC (Kodi) for HTPC + RetroPie. PS3 Bluetooth controllers connected as well for gaming. Kodi wakes up media server (separate storage) on demand so anyone can pick up remote and watch videos


I'm thinking of swapping out my Foscams for more Pi + Camera setups

Am looking to set up a Pi to detect the doorbell ringing via microphone + sample comparison and send SMS/Push alerts since sometimes we miss the sound

*quick edit*: Don't forget it does all this stuff with insanely low power usage, which is why I prefer an army of Pis to a bunch of desktops/servers/etc.

A good use I have not seen mentioned is wifi music players. If you have a lot of music on a NAS or USB stick these two programs are worth while. Both can go headless and are controlled by a web page. This makes controlling the music accessible to any one on your network with a web browser. I like Rune Audio better than Volumio.

I picked up one last month from arrow. I started with an orange pi zero. I'm still trying all kinds of stuff (kodi, dietpi) but I'm not really that impressed. The support base is huge compared to other boards and I came from SoC (esp8266 and arduino).

The RPI can do a lot but there's a lot it can't do. But maybe I'm too new or not doing it right. Anyway, I'd you're looking for an intro to physical computing, this is decent and you can always repurpose of you get bored.

I'd be interested in hearing what others think.

From the fine print on site under the coupon code:

Promo code is valid sitewide for 10% off Arrow.com purchases (before taxes/fees) and does not apply to products from Altera, FTDI Chip, Linear Technology, and Raspberry Pi Foundation.
