AVR Butterfly Carrier - Features

Atmel's AVR Butterfly

The AVR Butterfly is based on the ATmega169 MCU (with built-in LCD driver) and has a seven-digit, 16-segment LCD glass (eight digit, actually, but one isn't connected), a joystick, photocell, thermistor, piezo speaker and interfaces for external circuits.  There are lots of things you can do with this very inexpensive device.  It even has a pin so you can wear it on your shirt!

However, as it is so small and light, it can be a bit difficult to get to grips with.  There is no space for expansion and you could easily end up burying it in a tangle of wires.  Finally, the battery has almost no spare power for additional circuits.
