The Sun Small Programmable Object Technology (SPOT) is a small, wireless, battery powered experimental platform. It is programmed almost entirely in Java to allow regular programmers to create projects that used to require specialized embedded system development skills. The hardware platform includes a range of built-in sensors as well as the ability to easily interface to external devices. Both the hardware and software are open sourced.

There is a $300 fee, which includes a Sun SPOT Java Development Kit consisting of 2 full Sun SPOT devices and a base station, as well as development tools, tutorials, sample code and accessories. For those who already have a Sun SPOT Java Development kit, no fee is required.

There is a limit to a total of 20 teams, with each team having 1 to 3 members. Each team must bring a laptop to perform the programming.
