Microtouch: 8-bit Open Source Media Device

 Atmega32u4 microcontroller and a touch-sensitive LCD screen

From Slashdot:

"The Microtouch is a mobile media device that aims to become an open-source alternative to the iPod Touch."Deeper investigation reveals that the Microtouch is a nifty little device. Powered by an 8-bit microcontroller with only 2.5K of RAM there is an example ebook reader application. A primitive application framework (for some definition of the phrase) is available as Free Software, and for the hardware hackers the EagleCAD PCB files are published under a CC attribution-share-alike license.
