Topic: BUG SDK / How to re-open the window of the LCD module for the Virtual Bug?

Hi Brian and everyone!

I have a curious problem. I accidentally closed the java window that opens when you attach an LCD to a virtual Bug, the one that emulates the real screen in the Bug. And now I don’t know how to open it again.

I attached LCD to other slots, erase the settings, even reinstalled Eclipse (now 3.5) and the plugins, deleting all the workspace and program settings. Maybe there is a hidden configuration file somewhere else. How can I reenable that window?

By the way, I was in the office a couple of days (May 21st and 22nd). I’m Alvaro, the chilean guy, if you remember me.

Topic: Official Updates / International Shipment

cduhayon, enicky – thanks for the support! We issued an announcement a few weeks ago at JavaOne 2009 about this very topic. The next rev of the BUGbase (v1.3) will be certified for use in most EU countries (Belgium is one of them!), and we’re currently on track to ship BUG 1.3 internationally by the end of this quarter.

Once we begin shipping, we’ll announce via our blog, Twitter feed, and mailing list. And we’ve already got a few of these new BUGbases floating around our office, so they might be available in your country sooner than you think!

Cheers, -m

Topic: BUGmodules / 3G/Mobile Phone Module

I’m a Moblogger. This development system has great potential for the moblogger who wants more than the average phone can provide. But without a gsm/hspa module, it is severely limited. A keypad or qwerty keyboard would also be very usefull but that can be worked around by using the breakout board. :)

Topic: BUGmodules / USB on the Von Hippel module

I am running the R1.5 trunk and can not get a usb serial device to work that is plugged into the VH module.

I just get a bunch of: “device descriptor read/64, error” messages.

Topic: Official Updates / BUGbee available for purchase now!

G’day guys,

 when I first looked at it my mind said “Solar panel”.   Could be a possibility for a future module.  Solar powered recharging.  If the powers down and your away from a plug :) ,  just plug in your solar panel module and charge it up.

Just thinking out loud.

Topic: Official Updates / BUGbee available for purchase now!

From BUGblogger:

“A couple weeks ago at JavaOne 2009, we announced the upcoming availability of BUGbee,
our 802.15.4 low-power radio module. Today, we’re excited to announce
that you can now purchase BUGbee from our store for $79 and get it
delivered to you by next week.

What can you do with BUGbee, you ask? Well, BUGbee is a low-power,
low-bandwidth radio module. It operates using the 802.15.4 protocol,
which transmits data in smaller packets than 802.11 devices. BUGbee
also offers the same, if not greater, transmission range of wi-fi
(theoretically up to 1,200 meters). And since it consumes far less
power than wifi, it’s perfect for battery-powered sensor applications.

And since over 64,000 devices can reside on the same BUGbee grid
(unlike 32 with wi-fi), you can build larger-scale intelligent grid
networks with BUGbee. This makes it suitable for home automation,
energy monitoring, industrial machine-to-machine (M2M), supply-chain
logistics and more.

At JavaOne, we demonstrated BUGbeeChat,
a peer-to-peer IM client that lets two BUGs chat with each other
without a 802.11 wi-fi connection. We also have several applications
currently in development by our customers that we look forward to
sharing with you soon. For now, hop into our forums or IRC and let us
know what you plan on building with your BUGbee.”
