The range of things that have been enabled but the current combination of (relatively) easy code and inexpensive components continues to surprise/amuse me.
The item of the moment is the Oscilloscope Wristwatch from Gabotronics:

Not only a dual channel scope, but an ARB (arbitrary function generator), a simple logic analyzer and and protocol sniffer, on your wrist, for $150 (shipping next summer) but based on existing, slightly larger, hardware.
