These two boards would be great additions for the Raspberry Pi with INDI:

PiFace™ Digital I/O expander

Plugs directly onto the top of your Raspberry Pi, and allows you to sense and control the real world. Detect switch states, for example from a door sensor, a pressure pad or any number of other switch types. You can drive outputs to power motors, actuators, LEDs or anything you can imagine."

The PiFace Control and Display board

Plugs into the GPIO pins features:
  • 16 character by 2 line alphanumeric display
  • User definable custom characters
  • LED backlight
  • IR receiver
  • 3-position navigation switch
  • 5 tactile switches
  • Quick and easy menu building Python libraries provided

I could really see this on the Pi, displaying info like RA/DEC, time, camera tasks, etc. Even use it for simple movements with an IR remote..
