This is a prototype I've been working on for a couple months now. With all the same features as the main ThunderPack board, but much, much smaller! (40mm x 19 mm)

It also has an on-board 16Mb flash chip and a DotStar status LED. (both of these are also getting added to the next version of the standard ThunderPack board).

Due to it's size, I did have to drop a couple things:

This board is perfect for wearable applications that need to be lightweight. 

I've been building this prototype into a leather choker, similar to this Adafruit's Tutorial, for a friend. However, in my version the board is truly integrated with the choker with the switch poking through a slot in the leather and the LEDs mounted to a custom flex PCB from OSH park. I'll post pics and more info soon.
