At Maker Faire 2010 New York, the .NET Micro Framework team and Microsoft Research (Cambridge) showed off their new device: the ".NET Gadgeteer" -- it's like LEGO for electronics. In the video below, Colin Miller explains some of the details on the board. The board itself has a multitude of connectors, and each is labeled with a letter.
