More HW from OpenMoko

There's nothing stopping the community from trying to design some hardware.
Take a look at the Wikipedia page on open hardware There's lots of stuff out
there to get folks started.

We could try to create a new device, but I would rather create something
that augments the Freerunner like some microcontroller sensor hardware that
connects via USB. For example, a USB or bluetooth version of in a package that snaps onto the back of a
Freerunner could be pretty nifty.

How about a bluetooth or USB barcode scanner and RFID reader/writer that
snaps on the back in place of the regular back cover. That's something we
can do as a community. It's something that is also more likely to eventually
see support from the official Freerunner folks in the form of manufacturing
or just giving a professional opinion on the design.
