 I wanted to create a kids friendly micro controller. Something he could create the most amazing things with. I made a list of requirements:

one self contained blockit must be easy to use in something my son can build.ports must connect to all kinds of IO (leds, sensors, motors, servo's…)connecting to the IO ports must always be correct (i.e. reversal of the connector must be impossible or no problem)my son must be able to program it himself

A Simple 2-Way Bluetooth-based Android Controller for Arduino

A Simple 2-Way Bluetooth-based Android Controller for Arduino | MAKE and Tinkering | Scoop.it

ANDRUINO is a simple tool to help you control your Arduino (or clone) from your Android phone. It's both an Android app and an Arduino program. Andruino has a simple Android user interface to 1) control Arduino's digital and PWM pins 2)  send text commands to Arduino 3) and receive data from  Arduino over Bluetooth serial using the ever popular and really cheap (less than $10 from ebay) HC-05 Bluetooth over serial module or its siblings.

An Arduino is usually about the size of a credit card, but it can scaled down to be as small as a quarter.
ratzelster's insight:

It really is an amazing little machine.  Pretty overwhelming to learn all this but given time I think it's possible.  Question is how to fund each student getting one to use for the tinkering and making.
