Topic: Official Updates / International Shipment

Hey Yen10 – We are all set to ship internationally so hopefully most of our international customers will be sorted (cduhayon – Belgium is covered).  But I’ll definately look into Shipito – looks like a cool service.


Will Norway and the other EFTA countries be covered?

Wikipedia is talking about the CE mark and European Economic Area (EEA) which the EFTA countries is a part of.

You guys can always try an international forwarding service. You can purchase anything from U.S. retailers and they will forward it on to you anywhere in the world. I was using Shipito while studying abroad. Fees are pretty low. Check them out.

Topic: Meet & Greet / I'm new

Hi Guys,
I’m Tomi, a student doing some research for a hardware project. I need to make a custom gadget and the truth is i dont know where to start from. Here is a brief description of what I intend to make.
It’s a gadget that would have functions of a mp3player, camera, camcorder and would also be able to surf the net. It should be linux based.

Can anyone help? Kindly tell me what it takes to make something like this, needed devices, parts, procedures e.t.c I’ll really appreciate any info.

Thanks

Topic: Applications / Locative Art - Spook Country

This just came to mind.  A BUG with the camera module attached to an island opposite the screen module so it would act as if you were looking through the BUG.  Add the GPS module so the unit knows where it is on the planet.  All that is missing (to my knowledge) is a module that has a gyroscope to be able to tell orientation (not just accelerometers).

This combination would allow you to look through the BUG and use it as an augmented reality device.

Just a wild and crazy idea… but isn’t that where everything begins anyway??

Topic: Applications / Dead Board, Dead Product!

Hey Ned,

The upcoming wifi module will be 802.11 b/g compatible, and I don’t think you’ll have any problem connecting a bug to most wifi AP’s in europe.  http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/802.11g  We are also planning to release a GSM module which will allow a BUG to access the internet via cellular network.  I hope this helps.

Topic: Applications / Dead Board, Dead Product!

Hi all,


So I probably am trying to kill a mosquito with a hammer by posting here, but here’s my thought:

I want to monitor road traffic with wireless cameras that take photos every x seconds and relay said photos to a PC connected to the internet.

I want this equipment to work in SE Europe, starting with Greece and working my way up to Albania, Bulgaria, Serbia, and Montenegro.  I don’t know the right frequency they use for WiFi, but it must be the same as in the US, since WiFi/Wireless laptops from the states work there.  Let’s ignore the legal consequences for now, since I’m not an international lawyer.   I’m sure there are some though.  Probably privacy/spectrum issues.

Question:  is this the right product?  If so, which “bug” do I use? 

Is this the right forum?

Ned
