Arduino - HomePage. MyOpenRouter : The Premier Online Community for NETGEAR's WNR3500L & WGR614L Open Source Router - DD-WRT, OpenWRT, & Tomato Firmware. Open Source Hardware Initiative. As both an electrical engineer and professional software developer, I'd like to start an open source hardware movement similar to the open source software movement that has currently been happening.

Open Source Hardware Initiative

I've seen ideas similar to this from other people before, although not well thought out nor articulated correctly, and definitely not the same thoughts I have about the subject. This (somewhat long) post is a summary of my ideas, hoping to get some feedback from other people. Open source software has been around for awhile. We've all seen it: Linux is the biggest example. Why does open source software exist? Open source hardware obviously has different requirements.

Many people believe that open source hardware has to be all about integrated circuits (IC's) on chips. Now that the whole IC issue is out of the way, back to the PCB router. The users can get a desktop PCB router by either 1) Downloading open source plans for the router and building it himself. Sorry for writing a huge essay here. Village Telco » Mesh Potato. Mesh Potato Click for larger view The Mesh Potato is a device for providing low-cost telephony and Internet in areas where alternative access either doesn’t exist or is too expensive.

Village Telco » Mesh Potato

It is a marriage of a low-cost wireless access point (AP) capable of running a mesh networking protocol with an Analog Telephony Adapter (ATA).Here is the story of how the idea of the Mesh Potato came about. The first prototypes of the Mesh Potato were built in June of 2009, almost exactly a year after the Mesh Potato concept was conceived of. In late 2009, we launched a “beta” test of about 150 Mesh Potatoes in about 20 different countries. The production Mesh Potato can be seen at the right. The Mesh Potato went on sale in September 2010 and can be ordered through the online store of this website. UPGRADE INDUSTRIES.

Camera 2.0

See below for details. Marc Levoy has retired from Stanford University to lead a team at Google. This project is no longer active, and the Stanford Frankencamera is not available for purchase. However, the FCam API is available on cell phones and tablets that run Android version "L" (Lollipop), as the Camera2 API (Application Programming Interface) and HAL v3 (Hardware Abstraction Layer) for the cameras on these devices.
