Bug labs had a well attended get together in NYC, this was the first time they’ve shown real hardware in public, so it was pretty interesting to talk to their CEO Peter and their marketing fellow Jeremy about where they’re going… The goal is to make it easy for people to use modules like GPS, camera, Wi-Fi, screens, keyboards, etc all in the eclipse (open IDE) environment with everything being a web service of some sort. So, programmers being able to do hardware easier. They said everything will be open source – schematics, source and board files. I would like to see a working prototype once they’re ready as well as more details, but I’m glad they’re showing as much as they can, when they can as they move along. The event was packed, maybe 50+ people all there to hear more about open source hardware, in the VC circles and in hip publications open source hardware is gaining more attention – should be interesting to see what happens. Here are a few more photos.

    So, where’s the payout for Buglabs? Are they going to sell the pre-built hardware?
