coop0030 writes "Open source hardware company Adafruit has announced a new tiny wearable electronics platform board called the Gemma. The Gemma is a tiny, 1-inch diameter and 4-mm thick package. It's powered by an Attiny85 and programmable with an Arduino IDE over USB. There are three available I/O pins, one of which is also an analog input and two of which can do PWM output. Gemma is currently wrapping up development, but should be available soon."

    And it's awesome. It has a pile of cool peripherals that can be switched onto each pin. I took apart my LED flashlight the other day and found one of it's little brothers (also an 8 pin SOIC) doing the modulating to control the power to the LED. Just an IC and four components.

    This is one of the rare micros that you could actually make a market competitive product out of.
