Bug Labs, the company that makes modular electronics that allow you to build your own tech doohickeys quickly and easily, has announced five new modules: BUGprojector, a mini DLP projector developed in conjunction with Texas Instruments, which sounds very much like the tiny DLP projector we posted about last week; BUGsound, an audio processing module with four stereo input/output jacks, a microphone, a speaker, and builtin hardware codecs; BUGbee (802.15.4) and BUGwifi (802.11 and Bluetooth 2.0+EDR), which will let you connect wirelessly with your PAN and WLAN, respectively; and BUG3g GSM, for connecting to (you guessed it) 3G GSM networks. In conjunction with Bug Labs’ existing series of modules, especially the highly versatile BUGvonHippel universal module, you’ll be able to create some pretty kickass gadgets. No word yet on pricing, although Bug Labs expects to ship by the end of Q1 2009.

I dont care about another GSM module that acts as a MS (module terminal), I want BTS.
I read that AT&T and Verizon will be soon offering home SOHO GSM Base Stations for their DSL customers. Wonder if you could reprogram one to your own cell id.
These seem pretty neat, and all you have to know is Java to write for them.
I personally am pretty excited about all this, especially the projector module.
With the way these things are priced, it seems like an open-source equivalent is necessary. Perhaps something supporting Mobile Processing (http://mobile.processing.org/) could be the right in terms of software.
Still way overpriced.
Too. Damn. Expensive. To hell with buglabs.
this is some terrific thoughts
thanks !! very helpful post!
