BUGLabs has recently announced it will be introducing its BUGvonHippel breakout board module for Java/BUG software developers which includes a female USB 2.0 port. Named after MIT Professor Eric Von Hippel who authored Democratizing Innovation, the device has a female breakout board and direct connections to the circuit board for standard size wires. Users can connect power, DAC, serial and grounds as well as others to the BUGvonHippel module.
The device allows developers to plug in sensors or other connections to create new and interesting "hardware mashups," as BUGLabs calls it, by connecting their BUG to a wide range of other devices and interfaces. BUGLabs will showcase the module at CES, along with another one that has 3G wireless data network support.
The BUGvonHippel module is available now, priced at $79. [viaCrunchGear]
