“Bug Labs is developing BUG, an open, modular, consumer electronics web services + hardware platform. Designed for the general audience, not just the technically inclined, BUG is intended to bring to the world of hardware gadgets what the Internet, open source, XML and web services have brought to the world of software and media.”
Fred Wilson, from Union Square Ventures, mentioned BugLabs.net at the Fortune iMeme in San Francisco. Wilson: “We like the idea that maybe the consumer electronics business will become more open”. Launch of Bug Labs is expected in about six months.
