Peripheral Device Middleware




The starting point for work on devices that bridge "stupid devices". 

Some ideas:

  • interactions will be based on scenerios as the device is unlikely to be at easy to interface as a full fledge computer
  • scenerios may be customizable and configurable from a full scale computer
  • the device may have a modular I/O design to support enough bluetooth,firewire, and usb scenerios.
  • using an OS like linux to leverage the large driver set out there (compared to a novel OS).
  • allow for scenerios and device drivers to be modular and pluggable so people can make novel ones and so people can manage the limited memory of the device better.


  • spec out the prototype hardware that is portable and can still do some of the goals desired.
  • start developing scenerios
