Nice, one of the top projects on the Microsoft research site is the .NET Gadgeteer.  Sooo, where od I get one?  Can’t.

However, when you can, it will support the Creative Commons and Libraries for the Apache 2.0. 

Research is looking for hardware vendors who are interested in developing kits and modules, so you could contact them at:

gadgeteer@microsoft.com

http://netmf.com/gadgeteer/

If you got a business plan and a vendor in China, (or are already in China) this is the hardware chance for you to make some money.  Get busy!
