  3. 3. <ul><li>Minibug is complete. If it cost a grand you would still want one. Everything has been thought of. </li></ul><ul><li>Minibug is farsighted. The entire prototyping process has been considered and elegantly addressed. </li></ul><ul><li>Minibug is transparent. It removes the barriers to prototyping a new idea by performing right out of the box, extending itself over the Internet to anywhere, and interacting easily with other systems and devices. </li></ul><ul><li>Minibug is easy. Every aspect just works. The makers of Minibug have sweated the details. </li></ul><ul><li>Minibug is kind. It was made with relentless empathy for the user and the prototyping process. It's weird how the device seems to know what you need. </li></ul><ul><li>Minibug is possible. Each aspect we've envisioned already successfully exists. Rather than introducing new technologies or concepts, it's our combination that's the special sauce. </li></ul>miniBUG
