Element14 and Freescale Semiconductor bring you an exciting new microcontroller board called the XL_Star and I managed to get a review copy to show to you. This board has a lot of potential for the DIY synth community when it comes to motion based control interfaces because of the pre-configured accelerometer right on board.

Not only that but you have a chance to get a free board yourself by entering in their Summer of Design contest that runs until September. Check out http://www.element14.com/community/groups/summerofdesign for more information.
