Bug Labs is a hardware platform enabling tinkerers and engineers to create their own digital devices.

Description

Update

Bug Labs is creating a Lego-like hardware platform that tinkerers and engineers can use to create their own digital devices. Users start with the BUGbase and add Bugmodules to create a several in one gadget. The BUGbase is a general-purpose Linux computer about the size of a PlayStation Portable, encased in white plastic. This has four connectors that plug right into the motherboard. The modules include an LCD screen, a digital camera, a GPS unit, a motion sensor, a keyboard, an EVDO modem, and a 3G GSM modem. There are also places to add USB, Ethernet, WiFi, and serial ports. Bug Labs is planning on making 80 modules over time, and hopes outside companies and developers will create their own.
