      19 January 2006, Portland, Oregon. Perfectly Scientific, Inc. <www.perfsci.com>
      announces the newest release of their development tools supporting the bTop-1 board.
      This release adds support for the UNIX command line, C and RealBasic in addition to it's
      native Objective C environment.

      These single call UNIX (or C) API's make it even easier than the original Cocoa interface to
      acquire your data or control your real world objects. Communicating with the bTop1 board
      using UNIX or C, a server now runs in the background so that initialization and monitoring
      of your bTop1 boards is handled for you, allowing you to concentrate on building your
      own app and not spending your development time supporting the bTop1.

      The bTop-1 lab acquisition and control system from Perfectly Scientific, Inc. was designed
      specifically for Mac OS X. The card provides a new, easy way to connect your Mac to the
      physical world, and do so with great economy and efficiency. "bTop" is an acronym for
      giving one's computer a laboratory "bench-top," beyond the usual "desktop." The bTop-1
      board includes its own processor with dedicated RAM. The board uses full-speed USB 2.0
      offering 16 channels of digital I/O: 8 channels of 12 bit A-to-D and 8 channels of 8 bit D-
      to-A. By using its Cocoa, UNIX, C or RealBasic API's, prototyping and development of
      custom applications is simple and fast.

      Included in the development tools are several example applications, a "Cookbook" and full
      source code. The software is designed to get the user up and going as soon as possible in
      developing lab applications. This software is open source and can be downloaded at no
      charge from www.perfsci.com/hardware.htm

      The bTop-1 provides the best value for your data acquisition and control needs by
      offering 16 digital I/O channels, 12 bit D to A resolution and the highest analog channel
      count of any USB data acquisition/control card available for the Macintosh platform at one
      of the lowest price points.

      bTop Development Tools 1.1 with full source code including firmware source are
      distributed under the a BSD style license and may be downloaded at no cost from:
      <http://www.perfsci.com/hardware.htm>.

      Perfectly Scientific, Inc. was founded in 1997 and specializes in custom algorithm
      development, while also carrying a line of scientific products.

          Has anyone written an Applescript interface to the
          board drivers yet? If not, I can probably add this. There are people
          in Home Automation that are looking for just a board like this for
          putting sensors in their house.

          What's the status of the bTopRobot? Did he make it to MacWorld to
          strut his stuff at all? I'm really curious and have been sad to not
          hear much more about it.

          Have a great day!

            No AppleScript yet, give me time to breath (plus they are so
            underfunded it is ridiculous). You are welcome to play with it. As
            always full source is on the site.

            As to the robot no time on my end (and no budget to go to MacWorld).
            If I could figure a way of packing it to send it to you (without
            costing a fortune) I would.
