Logic SnifferThe Open Logic Sniffer is an awesome creation from the labs of Dangerous Prototypes and the Gadget Factory.  

A logic analyzer is used for observing the operation of digital circuits, computers, microcontrollers, etc...   The above guys made an immensely useful 32-channel one just slightly bigger than a credit card that's inexpensive.   A toy for engineers...
