Project14 | Which Past Themes Would You Like to Work On as a Team?

We are discussing doing something different that involves more advanced projects and engineers working collaboratively as part of a team.  If we were to do project competitions around past themes which of the following contests would you like to revisit to work on a collaboratively with other members?  You can use this as a forum to pitch your ideas to other members to help you finish a project in 4 month period of time.  Or,  you could take an existing project from a past contest and work together as a team to build that project into a finished prototype.
