What is Open Source Hardware?
“Open Source Hardware (OSHW) is a term for tangible artifacts — machines, devices, or other physical things — whose design has been released to the public in such a way that anyone can make, modify, distribute, and use those things.”
Why would we want to give away designs for free? We believe ideas and designs should be shared so that others may benefit from them, be inspired to make something new, or contribute an idea that leads to a better or more useful product! Below you will find all of our design files and associated information for our current products as well as for products we are currently developing. So please use, modify and distribute them as you like in accordance with the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International license.
Head over to GitHub and get the goods!
All of our files are hosted on GitHub where they can be downloaded, cloned and forked. Although GitHub is geared towards software development, it is slowly expanding support for hardware projects and we have decided to use it to host all our files. This allows us to use the awesome version control, issue and audit tracking, and collaboration features they offer. Which turns our work into a two way conversation rather than a one way street, and that is the true spirit of open source!
