My jaw dropped when one of my coworkers linked this to me! Looks very hackable, and could prove to be an excellent brain for a robot, with tons of add-on capability. Possibilities look endless!

I might have to pray to the wife-god for funding to pick one of these up... but I don't even have a robot to pop it in yet!

Ha! Too funny, I just saw this on g4tv last night. That was pretty much my reaction too. I showed everyone here the site, and they had the same;) I'm praying that they want some resellers!!

These are making the rounds pretty quick! I've already sent an email over to them. I think they are a great fit for our catalog. Unfortunately, we have to tell a lot of people calling in that don't know programming that they can't use a lot of the modular items that we sell. Bug labs looks like a nice happy medium that could be an answer for such people. I've been waiting to see a product line like this for years! they are like Phidgets, only geared for the less technical crowd that need a more simplified GUI.

They are a bit expensive for somebody like me, but I like what they have going on. It looks like there could be some market for add-on modules too.. :happy::happy:

I want to see what is inside the shiny white bug boxes, computer and modules. :happy::happy:

I did talk to them and they won't be ready for resellers for awhile. That's okay, I want to see what the market does anyhow. There are many high buzz products that just don't catch on for what ever reason. I like them, but the question really is, how many people fall into that thin slice between professional hobbyist and non technical tinkering fellow. Especially at those prices...
