"The Arducorder Mini, an Arduino-compatible pocket-sized handheld
sensing tool and the next in line of open source science
tricorder-like devices designed by Dr. Peter Jansen, is nearing
completion. Where the previous models have included about a dozen
sensors spanning atmospheric, electromagnetic, and spatial readings,
an exciting video of the new prototype shows this model includes
sensors for spectroscopy, low-resolution thermal imaging, and
radiation sensing. The development is open with the project build logs
and most recent source schematics, board layouts, and firmware
available on github. This project is an entry in the Hack a Day Prize
for a trip to space."

Packs an amazing amount of sensors in such a small form factor!
