Bug Labs enables software developers to easily create their own hardware gadgets. Based on an open source, modular hardware platform, each BUG is a fully programmable Linux computer, with CPU, RAM, rechargeable lithium-ion battery, LCD screen, USB, Ethernet, MicroSD slot, and serial interface, along with button controls. BUGs come with 4 slots to add modules like a camera, motion sensor/accelerometer, GPS, LCD Touchscreen, and more. It's like mashups for hardware!

At PPW '08, we'll be introducing you to BUG and giving you an overview of its features - including our SDK (in Java for the moment) and a preview of our newest modules that haven't been released yet. Specially prepared for this conference we'll also show Perl running on the Bug.

While you're waiting for the conference, you can try out our SDK and learn more about us by visiting www.buglabs.net. We look forward to seeing you soon.

Attended by: Michael Schwern (‎Schwern‎), Ricardo Signes (‎rjbs‎), Andy Grundman (‎andyg‎), Kelli Ireland, David Nolan, Michael Aquilina (‎aquilina‎), Sterling Hanenkamp (‎zostay‎), Jonathan David, Tom Peters,
