Abstract
In this paper we show an alternative implementation of object oriented middlewares oriented towards extremely low cost devices. We prove the validity of our approach with two prototypes supporting basic interoperability with CORBA and ICE. The resulting prototypes are two orders of magnitude smaller than any other previous implementation of small objects. We believe that ultra-low cost interoperabil ity with standard middlewares will be a major enabler of ambient intelligence by allowing affordable pervasive computing environments.
