A major manufacturer of CNC routers today launched what it hopes will be “a whole new class of digital tool” called the Handibot. The announcement was made at the Hardware Innovation Workshop , underway in San Mateo, Calif. <img class=" wp-image-307864 " alt="HIW2013d2_StettBlog_02" src="http://makezineblog.files.wordpress.com/2013/05/hiw2013d2_stettblog_02.jpg?
We are in the final hours of the campaign — if you haven’t backed the project yet, do it now ! If we reach $85,000 WE REACHED $85,000!! Great job everyone!

“The Open Source Ecology Steam Engine Project” by Mark Norton — #ohsummit « adafruit industries blogThe final video I captured at the Open Hardware Summit was this interesting talk by Mark Norton. Mark is heading up the steam engine project of the Global Village Construction Set . Open-sourcing purely mechanical projects like engines is something which I’ve been thinking about a lot lately, so this talk was really exciting to me. The idea, in the context of the GVCS, is to use this steam engine as a prime mover for a number of other tools, including electrical generators and pumps. Because of it’s simplicity, and the fact that it can be powered by pretty much anything that makes enough heat to boil water, it’s a very useful and versatile source of power. It’s also designed to be scalable: multiple single-cylinder engines can be mated via a common crankshaft to increase power output, so as to adapt to varying requirements.
Help make the ShapeOko DIY CNC machine a reality When Edward Ford told us about his plan to launch a Kickstarter project for his self-built CNC machine — made with SparkFun electronics and laser cut with his Personal Factory — we jumped at the chance to support his project. The ShapeOko is a complete, desktop CNC machine that anyone can build for about $300.
CubeSpawn is an open source hardware project. Its intended purpose is to “open source” a design for a flexible manufacturing system and design its components in such a way as to make the system capable of making most of its own parts. Frames, made from popular and widely available aluminum extrusion, are used to house machines that perform one step of a manufacturing process. With a bootstrapping (self starting) path to automated production built from open source designs, digital fabrication, and low cost fab-lab style manufacturing, individuals and small organizations can take advantage of contributed designs to rapidly provide commercial grade capabilities at DIY costs. Designs for laser cutting, coordinate measuring machines, mills, routers and other fabrication equipment are already available open source, a framework to add interchangeability, automation and compatibility should simply accelerate the process of integrating these designs.
From RepRapWiki MetalicaRap Release status: Experimental MetalicaRap is an open 3D metal & home solar cell printer that is currently in the design stage. The goal is to have affordable home-manufacturing of solar cells, key electrical parts and milled-quality metal parts    .
ROS (Robot Operating System) provides libraries and tools to help software developers create robot applications. It provides hardware abstraction, device drivers, libraries, visualizers, message-passing, package management, and more. ROS is licensed under an open source, BSD license.

These portable speakers are made from laser-cut wood, fabric, veneer, and electronics. They are powered by three AAA batteries and compatible with any standard audio jack (e.g. on an iPhone, iPod, or laptop). The speakers are an experiment in open-source hardware applied to consumer electronics. By making their original design files freely available online, in a way that's easy for others to modify, I hope to encourage people to make and modify them. In particular, I'd love to see changes or additions that I didn't think about and to have those changes shared publicly for others to use or continue to modify. The speakers have been designed to be relatively simple and cheap in the hopes of facilitating their production by others.
About The Uzebox is a retro-minimalist 8-bit open source game console. It is based on an AVR 8-bit general purpose microcontroller made by Atmel.
Microtouch – 2.4, make your own “iTouch-like” device! Sure, the latest “iTouchy” gadgets are pretty cool. But who wants a locked down device? Why not build your own touch-screen device , with your own apps, all on open source hardware and using open source tools? OK, it can’t play MP3s, but it does have a 320×240 TFT color display with resistive touch screen, an Atmega32u4 8-bit microcontroller, lithium polymer battery charger, backlight control, micro-SD slot, and a triple-axis accelerometer.

From Fab Lab wiki Basic Science, Simple Solutions Reflector Shape FabFi reflectors use the properties of parabolas to focus the RF energy of the WRT54GL router into a narrow beam that can go long distances. (see the Tech Summary for an explanation of how this works). Though the reflectors we use are designed in CAD program and built using computer-driven machining tools, parabolas can also be constructed mechanically using a square and some string , meaning that a reflector could theoretically be designed in the field using whatever might be available.
