New TECHNIC part, at 2008 sets

A new cool part was introduced with first 2008 TECHNIC sets (as in the image on the left).

It appears at 3 of the new sets (8291, 8292 and 8296), in one single color. Dark Stone Gray, DkStone or Dark Bluish Gray (respectively for LEGO, Peeron or BrickLink color name conventions).
It is coded x1835 at Peeron and bb321 at BrickLink.
This part also appeared simultaneously at a non TECHNIC set, 7669 (Anakin's Jedi Starfighter).

Which use will you make of it, at your MOCs?
Don't forget to tell us leaving a comment to this post. ;)

This piece will be really useful - rather unexpected, as Lego rarely bring out new types of beams. I really hope that the late 2008 sets will have new power functions pieces, as it will make combining them with mindstorms even more fun.
