SunSPOTs: Coolness Embedded

Our latest Innovating@Sun podcast is public, this time featuring Roger Meike from Sun Labs talking to me about the SunSPOT technology. SunSPOTs (Small Programmable Object Technology) are battery operated, wireless devices that run a Java stack on the bare metal. They can talk to each other, as well as a variety of real-world sensors like accelerometers, creating a myriad of uses for where your bits need to know about your atoms. The coolness is embedded, the value is yours to add -- the developer kit goes public soon as well.
Comments:
