qi-botThe build was successful: http://fidelio.qi-hardware.com/~xiangfu/build-nanonote/openwrt-xburst.minimal-20120706-1124 13:36
LunaVoraxHello everyone!18:19
LunaVoraxI remember someone talking about adding a gsm module to the Ben Nanonote to use it as a phone18:19
LunaVoraxIs it really possible?18:19
LunaVoraxA Ben NanoPhone shaped this way >> http://tecnoguia.com.ve/home/wp-content/uploads/2010/11/Nokia_C3_03.jpg would be a nice idea. Too bad it would cost a lot to build.18:23
LunaVoraxNothing especial to add, just a SIM tray and a gsm module. No need to add accelerometers, gps and bluetooth like the Neo FreeRunner18:24
DocScrutinizer05LunaVorax: adding a GSM module with a AT interface via UART is basically no problem at all. Audio though would have to be done in a dedicated way exclusively for the GSM22:32
DocScrutinizer05you could control the modem via minicom, first approach22:33
DocScrutinizer05the modem would need a mic, an earpiece, and a sounder to playback ringtone alarms22:34
LunaVoraxok i see22:34
LunaVoraxI seems quite unusable as a Ben Nanonote hack. I don't see myself fitting this in my backpocket22:35
DocScrutinizer05and actually that's oretty close to what you get when hooking up a ben NN to any old stile featurephone like Nokia 6210, via data cable and FBus22:35
DocScrutinizer05s/orett/prett/22:36
LunaVoraxOh really! You avec a "search and replace" bot! :o22:39
DocScrutinizer05we actually got two of them, but that's a bit too much :-D22:57
DocScrutinizer05anyway it feels a bit odd that this bot has +o all the time22:58
Action: DocScrutinizer05 idly ponders about script kiddie level expoits22:59
DocScrutinizer05foo \\\n\/kick qi-bot23:01
DocScrutinizer05s/foo/won't work, but if that would get replaced by a real carriage return, we're already there/23:01
