Submission + - SPAM: Sun Open Sources SPOTS project

stoolpigeon writes: "Sun announced today that they are going to open source SUN Small Programmable Object Technology (SPOT) with a press release that gives a quick rundown on the technology. Developement kits with 2 devices, a base station, tools, tutorials, etc. are now available in the U.S. for $550. Kits are available to educational institutions in a much wider range of countries. There is also an emulator available for those who are not interested in purchasing the hardware. The announcement that the Squawk JVM would be open source came last week. Roger Meike's blog has more explanations about what is now available as well as links to more sites connected to the project. Probably the most applicable to anyone who wants to start playing with SPOTS is this SPOTS project page."
