Re: [kde-edu]: Sugg: Framework for Science Meters

Dear list, 

I would be delighted if anybody might contribute to this topic:

who knows of existing projects evaluating measurement deviced connected 
to serial ports (chemistry, physics)..? Free software that is...

Excellent idea. I would like to promote the development of an
 OpenSource laboratory at Xplora.

We have some partner working on Webexperiments. Please have a look at
our webpages.

Brining in their experience might be useful.

 From my point of view, the OpenSource laboratory should focus on
Hardware interfacing to the USB port and Software taking signals from

I am sure that thre is a lot of softrware existing. Having an overview
would be nice.

Thanks for the initiative.
