I volunteer for this.

I volunteer for this as well, I have an idea about how make the
graphics update "real-time".

These are things that are easy to show at a booth and can be
continuously running, also show some of the things Perl is not very
well known for, but they kind of lack a punch. If people like these
however, I could build something to demo or simple a Perl screensaver
of sorts to run at the booth when there are no demos going on.

I can volunteer an oldish SMP headless workstation to run B or C and
anyone could demo them with a laptop, It would be nice to have a
couple of big monitors, which I don't have.
Another option to deploy the demos is to use VMware virtual machines,
that way anyone running Windows or Linux could show them or attendees
could even take them home to play with.
