- From Open Source to Open Hardware

,----[ Quote ]
| This column mainly talks about open source 
| software, for the simple reason that code 
| dominates the world of openness. But open 
| source hardware does exist, albeit in a 
| very early, rudimentary form. Last Friday, 
| I went along to NESTA for what was billed 
| as an âOpen Hardware Campâ. Fortunately, I 
| didn't see any tents, since that's not 
| really my kind of thing; what I did see 
| was a huge amount of enthusiasm, and some 
| interesting hints of things to come.

| European researchers have created the 
| architecture, hardware and software that 
| will enable super-agile distributed 
| corporations capable of reconfiguring 
| themselves on the fly. It promises to make 
| 'made-to-order' a reality for consumers.

| The open source software company debuted 
| its new hardware device at the Music Hall 
| of Williamsburg in Brooklyn, N.Y., on 
| Monday. The new device, essentially a TV 
| set-top box, will augment the current beta 
| software that's available so far only to 
| invited testers. Boxee officials expect to 
| have the first consumer TV boxes on sale 
| for around US$200 during the second 
| quarter of 2010.



Open Source Hardware Project RepRap Creates its First Circuit

,----[ Quote ]
| RepRap is an open source hardware project that aims to create a
| self-replicating machine or a 'universal constructor' by using rapid
| prototyping. That means the machine can manufacture objects directly
| including itself, endlessly.
