Open-source hardware in the creative world

& -September 13, 2013

Open Hardware Summit attendees packed the Kresge Auditorium at MIT last Friday with eyes and minds wide open to hear from engineers and makers on their open-source designs and overall thinking on the concept of sharing ideas and knowledge.

The concept of open-source hardware is hardly new, but it has surely picked up steam in the last year, with everyone from individual makers and start-ups, to professional engineers and established electronics industry companies taking notice.

EDN spent the day at the Open Source Hardware Association-run event and shares a few of its finds here. Some of the following designs may at first strike one as quirky one-off successes but broader thinking shows extensive opportunities beyond these examples.

Click through and see some of the samples of open-source-hardware usage and the creative people behind them that we found at the Open Hardware Summit.
