Bug Labs announces five new BUGmodules

Next Story

Live from the Monster Cable CES Press Event

It seems like TI’s DLP pico projectors are going to make a big push at this year’s CES. I mean, even Wowwee is getting into and we’ve caught wind of a few other big time players who are getting ready to announce similar devices over the course of the week. Bug Labs now has one and they’re calling it the BUGprojector. The other four BUGmodules include BUGsound, BUG3g GSM, BUGwifi and BUGbee. More juicy, buggy details after the jump.

* BUGprojector, a mini pico-projector module, incorporating DLP® Pico™ technology from Texas Instruments. With a native resolution of 480×320 pixels, stereo playback and a brightness of 9 lumens, users can project videos, photos and presentations on the go.

* BUGsound, an audio module, providing a flush-mount 20-mm speaker and omnidirectional microphone with hardware stereo codecs and four 3.5-mm stereo jacks for third-party inputs, outputs, headphones and microphones. Use BUG as a portable music player, speakerphone, audio processor or more.

* BUG3g GSM, a 3G mobile radio with SIM card input, enabling BUGs to connect to any high-speed GSM network. Users can place calls, send and receive SMSes or transmit data, opening a world of possibilities for mobile and telephony applications.

* BUGwifi, a dual-function 802.11b/g wi-fi and Bluetooth™ 2.0 + EDR radio, offering yet another wireless data connectivity option for the BUGbase, while providing a gateway to a variety of peripherals such as keyboards, mice, headsets and more.

* BUGbee, a low-powered 802.15.4 radio, enabling BUG developers to create short-range personal area network (PAN) applications for home automation, sensor networks, automotive and more.

The five new modules will ship this quarter, but pricing, availability and other technical specifications will be revealed in the coming weeks. I really want to get my hands on this stuff.
