The BMP085 (Datasheet) from bosch sensortec is a simple, easy to use, pressure sensing device. It speaks I2C and includes a temperature sensor. Because of it's tiny size of 5.0mm x 5.0mm x 1.2mm it fits nice into the Freerunner. I glued mine into the empty space between the AUX key and the bluetooth antenna.

An experimental kernel driver for the chip is available from gitorious

For other chips and ideas on how to use them see Variometer and Wish_List_-_Hardware_-_Atmospheric.
