As a practical matter, though, people aren't going to put lava lamps and cameras in their colos along with every 1U box and blade server. They also won't attach them to the $40 boxes they buy at Best Buy. Good solutions probably involve hardware that is well tested, on motherboard, dirt cheap and easy for software to field validate.
