Bug Labs, a start up that’s attempting to bring some open source hardware action to more developers out there just updated their site with a bit about their dev environment. They’re still looking for beta testers too so sign up if that’s your thing… –

BUGbase is the foundation of your BUG device. It’s a fully programmable and “hackable” Linux computer, equipped with a fast CPU, 128MB RAM, built-in WiFi, rechargeable battery, USB, Ethernet, and a small LCD with button controls. It also has a tripod mount because, well, why not? Each BUGbase houses four connectors for users to combine any assortment of BUGmodules to create their ultimate gadget.

I haven’t seen more than hardware samples so far, so I can’t really comment on this more than it looks interesting and they seem to be saying/doing all the good things for OSH so far.
