Bug Labs announces five new BUGmodules that will be exhibited at the CES 2009. The five new BUGmodules are comprised of the BUGprojector (yes, yet another Pico Projector), BUGsound, BUG3g GSM, BUGwifi, and BUGbee.

These five modules complement the initial batch of BUGmodules, including BUGlocate (GPS), BUGcam2MP (digital camera), BUGmotion (motion sensor and accelerometer) and BUGview (touchscreen LCD). And with the recent addition of BUGvonHippel, a breadboard module enabling users to add virtually any interface to their BUGbase, developers are given more control in making BUG the center of their device universe.
More details about the 5 new Bug Modules:
The BUGprojector, a mini pico-projector module, incorporating DLP Pico technology from Texas Instruments. With a native resolution of 480x320 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 SMSs 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.

All new BUGmodules will ship this quarter, with pricing, technical specifications and availability information announced on the Bug Labs blog in the coming weeks.
