Here's some more info on DIY & Hackable Ardiuino's:

microcontroller, a couple of leds, a bunch of i/o pins, and a USB
interface. Accompanying it is an IDE environment for pcs, macs, and
linux that lets you program it in C. Inexpensive even in single
quantities at under $40 for a complete system. One of the key points
of the design is ease of real world interfaces so there are a bunch
of, again inexpensive, sensors & actuators (accellerometers, vibrators
etc.) and interfaces (bluetooth, wifi) available.
