Bug Labs just threw the door wide open on its website, and is finally hitting us with the nitty gritty on its open source hardware modules. There are too many details to get into, but the BUGbase “foundation” module is boasting an ARM1136JF-S processor, 128MB of RAM, 802.11b/g WiFi, USB, Ethernet and a small LCD with button controls. There are four connectors on the BUGbase to plug into other modules, and plenty of support for cameras, networking, displays and the like. So far the confirmed modules include GPS, camera, touchscreen LCD and an accelerometer, while under “coming soon” we’ve got features like a double-width touchscreen, QWERTY keyboard, audio speaker and mini jacks, and of course the all-important “teleporter” module. Bug Labs is still on the hunt for beta testers, so if you’re not afraid of getting your hands dirty with an SDK and some halfway-there-hardware, be sure to hit ’em up.
