| The market for open source hardware is hotting 
| up, with the top 13 companies in the space 
| turning over nearly $50million last year â 
| according to Phil Torrone, designer at Adafruit 
| industries. Speaking with Adafruitâs founder 
| Limor Fried at the OâReilly Foo Camp East in the 
| beginning of May, Torrone also claimed that 
| there are now nearly 300 significant open source 
| hardware projects in development and predicted 
| that the market will grow to over $1billion by 
| 2015.


The project is open source, so stay tuned for the specs!

| Is getting your very own YouTube channel a
| measure of success these days? It doesn't
| really matter for a robot that has no
| emotions, although that does not rule them out
| from getting their own channels either - case
| in point, the Qbo open source robotics project
| that comes with their very own YouTube channel
| you see above, depicting the stereo camera
| calibration method for the curious.


Qi Hardware Launches Open-Source Computer

,----[ Quote ]
| It's difficult to envision a computer that's
| completely open-sourceâand I mean completely,
| right down to the software on its drives, the
| drivers for its components, and the circuit
| boards for its construction. However, Linux
| News has gotten its hands on one such device,
| Qi Hardware's "Ben NanoNote," and it's one of
| the few massive hardware projects in
| existence that runs on completely copyleft
| hardware.
