Batsocks is a super cool little company making an arduino shield called the TellyMate

the TellyMate puts out black and white PAL or NTSC Composite Video and has an inbuilt character set or can be used for simple graphics 

I was thinking If you took one of these £15 and an arduino £10 you would have an interesting "Video Oscillator" as the basis for a simple video synth for £25 not bad

all you need to do is write an interesting program maybe even make it audio reactive by attaching a sensor to the arduino 

bildheinzer (scroll down his page) has already accomplished some audio reactive arduino action by using the arduino pong code by Alastair Parker found here  whitch I think inspired the idea for generating composite video from arduino found here 

and heres an interesting video by Batsocks
