Sun Labs' Project Sun SPOT is a small, wireless, embedded, sensor/effector platform that is based entirely on Java. Sun SPOT devices are designed to inspire programmers to think beyond the keyboard, mouse, and screen to move on to program the world around them. We will explore the capabilities of the platform, from wireless mesh networking to built-in public key cryptography. We will also see some of the novel uses of this technology in art, in robotics, and for applications from wildlife habitat restoration to making bicycles fly. The entire project (hardware and software) is open source. The software environment is freely available online and includes an emulation environment.
