Branded Independent: Bug Labs

Now this is "Independent Business" at it's best. Bug Labs has created a small linux based computer. Translation: It's a small computer that doesn't run the mac OS or windows. It's made that way on purpose so that we "the consumers" can take the gadget to places the designers would never have thought of. Who knew a customizable computer. They explain it best.

 

"BUG helps you explore the realm of personalized devices and applications, and find ways to solve many of the problems current gadgets can't. For example, with BUG, you can easily assemble and program a GPS + digital camera device that automatically publishes geo-tagged photos as a web service. Integrating with an online photo-sharing service like Flickr is only a few more lines of code away, and now you have your own real-time, connected traffic-enabled mobile Webcam! The platform is designed to enable a collaborative development environment. BUGnet, our online community, is tied in directly to the BUG SDK, which allows developers to connect with others, share information, and jointly build products or services."
