A couple months ago I decided I wanted an iPod dock for mounting on the wall. The plan was to use it as a wall mounted (and portable) iTunes remote. I couldn't find anything on the market that had the 'aesthetic' I was looking for and so I set to work building one. Behind the screen is a sheet of polycarbonate that I sandblasted; it serves as a diffuser for red LED lights. When it is set up the screen behind the iPod glows red and lights the wall around it in a red glow. My goal was to give it an industrial look and I think it turned out pretty well.
