First Look at Bug Labs Hardware (Video and Gallery)


Bug Labs and their open source hardware might make building gadgets as easy as stacking lego bricks. Here's the first time we've seen the hardware live and we were lucky enough to have founder Peter Semmelhack walk us through the gear, module by module. Below, there's a gallery walkthrough of the parts. [Bug Labs on Giz]

Agreed—I hope they do a wider screen to compete with the iYouknowwhat. I'm curious to see how the software will work, too. Other modules I'm curious about would be TV Tuner (with some sort of video input and recording capability), wifi card, business card scanner, and the aforementioned wider screen—I'm just assuming they'll support mp3/4 playback.

Over all, that's a great idea for a system. Then again, all those modules might be a little easy to lose. Still, I'm very curious to see how this one turns out.
