We are currently working with a company called FlexiPanel and hopefully we will have a device soon that will perform this function.· As of now, we have a device that allows you to program the BASIC Stamp using a Bluetooth device called the ToothPIC from FlexiPanel.· You can find more information at www.flexipanel.com (http://www.flexipanel.com) .
