Sending you next robot to Antarctica?

Well, maybe not Antarctica, but somewhere with a 0-50°C (32-122°F) temperature range?
Plat'Home from Japan has just announced the release (in North America) of their OpenMicroServer.
The OpenMicroServer has an AMD 400MHz processor, three network ports, 8-bit DIO, RS232, 2xUSB2.0 and a CF slot. More specifications available here.
Now, with the addition of a usb-attached IO board, this could form the basis for one hardy robot!
Let's just hope they ship to Australia.
