One of the highlights hidden in the Sands at this yesr's International CES in Las Vegas was Bug Labs’ BUGbase and BUGmodules. This system is designed to be modular and mobile. The $349 base contains an ARM1136JF-S microcontroller with MPEG4 hardware encoding/decoding, graphic acceleration, and a 10/100 Ethernet MAC. It also has 802.11b/g support. Modules cost less than $100 and include a digital video camera, an accelerometer, and a touch-sensitive LCD. The base has four sockets, two on each side, for modules. Everything is open-source, including the software. The Bug Module Interface system uses Java and OSGi support that significantly simplify module utilization.
