I have a prototype running on a Teensy3, but I’ve come to the conclusion that in order to really be secure there has to be some I/O on the dongle itself.  Hence, I am commissioning a new design that is essentially a Teensy3 with the addition of an OLED display and two push-buttons.  It will also have an on-board noise source for key generation.  The resulting device will be very similar to the Trezor, but not designed specifically for BitCoin.  I expect to be able to sell them for about $50.

i have something like this ready. here's a video from last year when it was
