Mechanical Engineering Senior Project idea's?

I am very good at solid modeling and CAD programs. I also would like to go in the direction of a kinematics project that I can actually build. I need a creative mind. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    You may like to design one of the following:

    - hydraulic cylinder or a pump.

    - any type of crane (counterbalance or jib crane)

    - gearbox, velocity reduction unit, clutch, brake or anything of that type.

    - robotic arm/manipulator.

    Hope you like one of them, and enjoy doing your project.

    I believe that the purpose of this project is to familiarize you with the machining process itself, not the design. I would recommend you make something that will involve a LOT of machining processes using the mill, lathe and so on. I would suggest you make a hydraulic jack to lift a car when you need to replace a flat tire. Small and simple system, but has irregular shapes of components so you can practice doing a lot of various maching processes.
