I just bought one of these little beauties, the StickDuino, and its tiny size is awesome. There are no tricks of perspective here, it is almost exactly the same size as my old work-horse SanDisk USB Stick, although a tiny bit wider. Aside from the sub-$20USD price-tag, the best bit is the integrated USB chip + connector, something that made the "package-arrived" to "blinking-LED (hello-world) program running" process about 3 minutes (the time it takes to install the drivers and un-rar the IDE).

My intention is to have this attached to the back of my Robosapien V1, with an IR LED for control, or to the CMUCam for a little cat-tracking robot!
