We went to the ESC last year (I think it was last year, and think it was ESC) at Moscone -- it was like the Hall of the Living Dead.  All these embedded systems companies who were competing with each other on the basis of making something $0.001 cheaper than the guy with the identical product at the booth next to him.  Give me the heebie jeebies.  I doubt we'll bother going this year, but if anyone's coming to San Jose from out of town, we're just down the road and open for having coffee/beer while you're out here.

Subject: [Gumstix-users] Popular Science - "Spy Fish"


In case you have not seen it already, the February 2006 Edition of "Popular Science" magazine has an amazing, two-page color photo of the Robotic Fish that are swimming around a tank in the London Aquarium. According to the article, the beautiful photograph was taken by Adrian Dennis, a Staff Photographer with Agence France Presse (London). It's an up close and personal shot - and the fish are surprisingly life-like.

These autonomous fish have gumstix computers inside according to Professor Huosheng Hu, the lead researcher of the University of Essex team.

More information on the fish can be found at http://www.gumstix.org or the Professor's home page: http://cswww.essex.ac.uk/staff/hhu/>
