Topic: BUGbase / No Wi-Fi???

Hi there,

The price is not affected – in fact, we’ll be including a free "von Hippel" module with every Hiro P, and we’ll also be making the wifi module available at production cost.

We’ll also be extending the early adopter discount for those who prefer to wait for the wifi-enabled BUGbase.

Hope this answers your question.

Best, -m

Topic: BUGbase / No Wi-Fi???

So, I just saw a post on Make: magazine’s blog about the BugBase not shipping with 802.11.

Does this affect the price?

Topic: BUG SDK / ARM Jazelle technology support


As the brain from the base platform supports the ARM Jazelle technology and I understand that your application is tied to the J2SE Java development environment, I would like to know whether applications written in Java will benefit from the CPU founder’s Jazelle technology which I understand help optimize Java applications performance and reactivity at runtime.

In other words, is Buglabs a licencee of ARM for offering this nice feature to any embedded platform?

Forgive me if this asking was already posted in your forum… :wink:

Thank you for any information on this,
Best regards,

Topic: Meet & Greet / Automated Acoustic Recording Device


I am an ecologist, and am interested in building some automated acoustic recording devices for monitoring natural habitats. I don’t need anything fancy, and some options already exist, but I am intrigued by the possibility of building a device tailored to my needs (and that I can modify myself).

Can I use existing bug modules to:

1. Record through an external microphone attached through an XLR output jack 3.5 mm stereo mini-jack.

2. Store uncompressed audio files (wav or aiff) on a solid state hard drive

3. Ability to program the device to turn on and off on a set schedule

4. Connection to external power source

5. accurate internal clock/calendar

6. Time stamp (georeference might be useful).

Unfortunately, I know nothing about hardware/software. But I’m willing (and excited ) to learn and work if this device seems like a possibility using the bug hardware.

Topic: BUGmodules / Some ideas for modules.. (a rather long list!)

Btw, the altimeter would have to be very responsive and precise, anything else would’nt help a paraglider (like myself), thermals can be tricky.

Topic: BUGmodules / Pro audio module

I would like to see a pro audio module with XLR inputs and outputs, and 1/4 inch inputs and outputs.

You could stack them and build your own multichannel mixing board / effects processer / recording studio.

Combined with a wireless module of some kind you would be able to have musicians mixing their own effects onstage and sending that mix to the house mix wirelessly.

Topic: Applications / Action Scripting!


So I am trying to imagine your system here.

You have a private web server hosting the video clips with a comment system. Access is restricted to a certain group of people and their PCs and BUGs.

From your BUG you would have access to this server, using standard web services. The BUG can consume the services but as far as I can tell most of the complexity ends up on the server itself making the back end for the BUG to plug into.

Your friends log on with their PCs & BUGs and access all the info on your server and comment on it.

You take the BUG and see what they have posted and updated through the web services provided by your server, and write an application for the BUG that allows you to comment back.

This could be possible. It is a lot of software to be written, and depends a lot on how what kind of feed back you want to do. You have access to web services with the BUG, and that kind of opens the door to anything on the internet. It would certainly be a very sophisticated piece of software, and I think it would end up being a custom app for you. Over time some pieces of it will probably get written by the community, I’m sure a lot of people are interested in connecting their BUG to a personal server, and then it is all about your specific application.

If you are interested, you can try out the SDK and it does everything the BUG itself will do and see if it fits your needs.

Topic: Applications / Action Scripting!

What I’m interested in is, I have a server with some video clips
that are used for friends and clients only, displaying a "how to"
section for reference and tutorials. I wanted to know if I will
be able to post the clips on the server, and seeing that it will be
viewable to the members who all will have different questions at
some point, will I be able to select a clip(s) that is selected by an
individual and layer it with specific information to the clients request,
and make it available to them for download with the information
that I provide?! Making the answers to the clip(s) personal and individual
to each clienst request available for them to download??!

That is where I am puzzled. If this is possible through this device, it
will be of great help, and, if you know of any other software/hardware, can you please direct me???

Thanks a lot,
