Sun’s SPOT kit

OK, this isn’t Microsoft’s SPOT technology, it’s another one, from Sun and it’s all about sensors – “Sun Microsystems detailed on Monday a Java-based wireless-sensor development kit that it intends to sell to researchers, universities and hobbyist programmers.”Link.

    This looks great…but at $500 for a developer’s kit, it’s not exactly maker friendly :(

  2. Silveira Neto says:

    $500 is for an kit with 3 spots, two of them with sensor board.
    Anyway, you can submit a proposal and get free spots.
