Can anybody identify these microcontroller for me? Answered

I am an electronics hobbyist, and i really enjoy the arduino.
AND THEN, I saw these microcontrollers on TV in a cat-turned-twitter-user project.
could anyone tell me what they are? I recognice one of them as having an arduino underneath and I think its an ethernet shield on top. But what's the small one with the battery clip?

Thanks in advance, pictures below (I think).

I think you have a JeeNode or another board like a JeeNode based on the HopeRF module. That should point you in the right direction.

Do you have any idea of what show it was and what episode? Maybe there is a video of it on the net somewhere we could have a look at.

Yes, I can! It looks like either a Virtual Chip or a very complex Memory Card. I'm not saying it is, but it could be a Electric Chip to a stun gun so be careful!

I see there is a crystal on a small shield soldered to the long top board, and what looks like an antenna soldered on as well, so I guess it is a radio module. The long board on top has a small square micro controller by the looks of it, could be an atmega 328, can u read it? It looks like it has lots of labelled pins. Maybe its an arduino fio or something to help program the arduino beneath.

unfortunately i cant read the name of the chip, the picture is limited by the TV resolution and not my camera so what you see is all I have to go on as well. Thanks for that though, I will have to investigate this further....
