Total Open Station on the OpenMoko FreeRunner

Joseph Reeves has showed us something that wasn't even planned when we started the Total Open Station project.

He had our “helper” application running on the OpenMoko FreeRunner. A few words from his blog post are enough to get the (beatiful) idea:

The FreeRunner has a USB host port; you simply plug your phone into the Total Station, download the data and send it over the mobile network to our survey database in the office.

And if you don't feel like using a smart phone because it's too small, just replace FreeRunner with Asus EeePC or One Laptop Per Child.

Free mobile archaeology.
