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

Dear list,

during "Linuxtage Essen" (Essen Linuxdays), some scientists addressed 
the lack of free interfaces to scientific gear such as thermometers, 
gyrometers, geigercounters, whatsoever.

As a matter of fact, there are already loads of measuring tools - but it 
lacks integration and usabilities if we want to use them in school.

This made me think: How about a framing project / application similar to 
ksensors? Existing implementations could dock into such framework. The 
framework itself could provide features like
- data recording 
- data plotting
- statistical evaluations.

Also popping into my mind is ksimus datarecorder as one possible 
frontend. As it comes to realtime data, acoustic recorders could be 
another approach.

What is your comments on this? Should we forward this idea to kde-devel?

Cheers & merry nick day ;)
