    Microchip controllers are very cheap, and the tools needed to start
    developing applications are the cheapest existing today!
    All you need is the ICD2 Programer/Debuger tool, about 200 USD, and a
    good tutorial book. The ICD2 is a tool which you can use for a very
    large range of Flash processors (possibly over 200), and the tutorial
    book explains how to write firmware for any microcontroller of the
    Microchip family. Even more; the tutorial book I am referring to comes
    with a Hardware Companion Kit which helps you write and test all your
    future firmware programs!

    New exciting technology? Those chips are decent but they're been around for
    decades now. Lots of microcontroller architectures to play with these days,
    the software to do so is usually free and the hardware is minimal. I got a
    whole dev kit for a Zilog chip on special for 10 bucks, my AVR dev board was
    $80 but packs a lot more features.
