Open Hardware & Bug Labs Test Kitchen

The phenomenon of Open Hardware  includes the Arduino, Microsoft Research’s .NET Gadgeteer, Little bits, the Raspberry Pi and Bug Labs, amongst many others. Alongside these open electronic toolkits there is a growing community of users which are actively involved in exploiting their capabilities and developing new components both software and hardware.

A series of open workshops at New York based Bug Labs is called the Test Kitchen. “The BUG platform is composed of BUGbasesTM and BUGmodulesTM. The BUGbase is the “brain” and provides CPU, storage and networking services. BUGmodules are discrete, plug-and-play functional units that add capabilities to the BUGbase. Up to four physical BUGmodule connections and an unlimited number of wireless connections via Bluetooth, WiFi, etc. are supported by each BUGbase.”
