Ultra low power wireless arduino
The cortado by lightblue is a cool little piece of hardware. It has a bluetooth low energy radio, and a tiny arduino on board. This little guy is designed to be programmed over the air, and being an arduino, it's probably fairly easy too. It also has an accelerometer, an RGB led, and can function as an apple ibeacon device (apples ble micro-location service). It runs on a single watch battery and is projected to run for up to a year. The price? $18.90.
