Need help finding microcontroller

by Longrange on Sun Jun 03, 2012 1:07 am

i was talking to someone today at the Seattle mini makers fair and he showed me the robot he built and was talking about different micro controllers, specifically the "Teensy", but he also told me about one, i forgot what it is called but i do remember the name starts with a v and it is slightly longer than the Teensy but it has a built lithium ion battery which is perfect for a project im thinking about, he barely talked about it so i cant remember the name so would anyone here be able to help me identify it for me, thanks in advanced

i don't think that was it, he mentioned it was a lithium ion, or lithium polymer battery, thats still a cool kit i may have to look at thanks
