Modular computer

    Did you like the modular phone? Do you want to assemble any other device to your taste? Would you like a camera with integrated GPS, please. Want a player with an accelerometer, please. Almost anything can be assembled from Bug modules.


    At the end of 2007, Bug Labs introduced the concept of a modular computer BUG. The idea of ​​this Linux-based device is as follows: there is a portable base computer module to which, depending on the specific needs of the user, other modules are connected, whether it is a digital camera, accelerometer, display, or some other device. The set of modules that is currently offered in the company’s online store is rather scarce, but at CES 2009 Bug Labs representatives showed some very interesting products that should significantly increase public interest in the project.

    For example, BUGprojector is a projector module built on the basis of DLP technology and capable of displaying a picture with a resolution of 480x320 pixels with a brightness of 9 lumens. BUGsound turns the minicomputer into a music player with a 20 mm speaker, omnidirectional microphone, hardware codecs and four 3.5 mm audio jacks.


    BUG3g and BUGwifi are wireless modules. The first one has a SIM card slot and provides access to the Internet through a third-generation mobile network, and the second offers Wi-Fi (802.11b / g) and Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR functionality.


    You can find out which modules are already on sale on the BugLabs website . You can also find a lot of interesting videos there.
