SunSPOT Adventures

SunSPOT means Small Programmable Object Technology. From Sun microsystems. And really cool. They are really like embedded devices and you can program them in Java with full IDE and debug support.

For indepth details and source code have a look at the NL-JUGs SunSPOT wiki here .
