Wow! nice site! Jesus, it gives you some ideas. See all the awesome accelerometers, gyros, mag sensors and baro sensors? Amazing stuff. You could tell compass heading, 2-d acceleration, barometric pressure, humidity and temp, multiplex it all down to one input, it'd fit in 2 square inches, cost $100 and you could make it decode mp3's too. :-)

Plus, they sell a rotary cellphone. Wow.

I have a bluetooth serial adapter that I plan to "develop" into a useable way to tune my car some day.

Megasquirt can do that. You know you want to get rid of your $2000 Hydra for a $200 Megasquirt.
