Details of Bug Labs and their open source gadget hardware just hit their public website. The BUGbase is the foundation of every project you'd piece together, includes an ARM1136JF-S-based processor running Linux, 128MB of RAM, Wi-Fi, USB Ethernet and a small LCD with buttons.


(And, thoughtfully, a tripod mount which I'm sure can be used to give your creation working tank treads.) Specs are here, but first, the official list of the all-important bug modules, which latch onto the base with steel tentacles to create your pocketable open-source gadget Voltron:
•GPS, Digital/Videocamera, Touchscreen LCD, Accelerometer are officially coming.
•The list of things slated afterwards along a more vague timeframe include a "2x" touch sensitive LCD, QWERTY, speaker with mini jacks in and out and a teleporter.
