Topic: Official Updates / The store is live!

I put my order in for the bundle. So the Hiro version is going to have a WiFi Module – that will be okay. I will most likely buy the BUGbase with the built-in later on.

Can’t wait for international shipping. When it takes loooong before that is possible, maybe i’ll have a look on eBay or something.

Maybe i wait until wifi is buit in, it’s something i really need.

But i’m very excited about buglabs, so i’m a customer for sure :P .

Topic: Meet & Greet / Automated Acoustic Recording Device

Hi Matthew,

What you are describing will be possible in Q2 2008 when our next set of modules are released that will include the audio speaker and I/O mini jacks. Keep in mind that in order to use the BUG you will need to be able to program in Java, so if that is something you are interested in doing then you could definitely make the device you have described here.

Hope this helps!

Hi, RobbieThe1st. You should be able to find detailed SDK installation instructions on our wiki at http://bugcommunity.com/wiki .

Please feel free to post any additional questions you might have.

Topic: BUG SDK / REQUEST: Guide to getting the BUG SDK installed.

Well, I know a bit of Java, and I figured on trying my hand at making an application for the BUG, and so I downloaded the SDK - A little over 1kb of .jar file, and its not a valid .jar file. I then read the SDK page and determined that I need to use "Eclipse" to download/run the SDK… Well, it would be nice if there was a guide showing me how to do this. I could probably figure it out with enough trial and error, but I don’t see how others less knowledgeable than I can figure it out.

So yea… Am I missing something?

Topic: Applications / What about components?

I have a similar question to Shawn. I put together a static helper class called PositionHelper that works with LatLon objects to: calculate the distance between them using the Haversine formula; display them as strings; and convert kilometers to miles.

I’ve used this is a couple of my bug apps, but for now I’ve just been making a utils package with that class in it, and copying it from project to project. If we had a GPS utils package or something, these functions could go in there.

Any thoughts as to how we share general purpose utility libraries, as opposed to full-blown apps like we do on bugnet?

Was waiting til Monday to do this, but hey, it's the weekend, why not? :)

We're going to be sending two BUGbundles out, one for you, one for Koolatron. So you get the BUGbase and all four shipping modules, and we'll send you the vonHippel module when it's ready!

Sorry for the long, long wait - we had planned to do this some time ago, but the snag we hit early on in manufacturing basically nixed our whole approach. But, we're back up and running now...

Wow!!!! That's exceedingly generous of you guys! I'd better get back to working on that todo app and earn my keep, huh?

Thanks again!
