I wanted to let you know that our Kickstarter has just launched, it's called the Sirduino. The Sirduino is an open source, Arduino compatible electronics learning tool powered by Atmel's XMEGA family of processors. We have created a board that easily connects the functionality of up to 5 expansion boards. We call these expansion boards Hats(instead of shields). We have designed the Hats so that any combination of them can be used simultaneously without the worry of hardware conflicts.
Check it out and let us know what you think. If you have any questions, feel free to respond.
The Myownduino Team,
