Digispark - I don't know what it is, but I think you want one (or 12)

The description:

The micro-sized, Arduino enabled, usb development board - cheap enough to
leave in any project!

(Read $12 or less if you buy more than one - and that includes free
shipping within the US)

It's on Kickstarter.

The Story:

We set out to build a little brother to the wonderful Arduino line of
development boards - we were tired of leaving our valuable Arduino's behind
in projects, or worse, ripping apart old projects to build new ones! We
also felt the Arduino was too big and powerful for many projects where we
only needed a few pins, or an SPI or I2C bus. And so the Digispark was
born! To us, the best things about the Arduino is the community, the easy
of use, and the IDE - by making the Digispark an Arduino compatible
development board all of those remain common. Plug it in, power your
project with USB or external sources, program it with the Arduino IDE, and
easily use existing Arduino code! But with its small size and low cost you
can feel free to leave it in your project, give one to a friend, and use
them everywhere!

The Specs:

Support for the Arduino IDE 1.0+ (OSX/Win/Linux)
Power via USB or External Source - 5v or 7-35v (automatic selection)
On-board 500ma 5V Regulator
Built-in USB (and serial debugging)
6 I/O Pins (2 are used for USB only if your program actively communicates
over USB, otherwise you can use all 6 even if you are programming via USB)
8k Flash Memory (about 6k after bootloader)
I2C and SPI (vis USI)
PWM on 3 pins (more possible with Software PWM)
ADC on 4 pins
Power LED and Test/Status LED (on Pin0)
