This is an old revision of the document!


Here is a collection of all the Open Source Hardware projects I've been able to track down In general, a project must have some electronic component and have at least firmware open. Software doesn't count, sorry! "Open source" in this case is strictly defined by the OSI Open Source License definition. Bizarre and/or restrictive licenses don't count.


Projects must be at least started to be counted here!

  • OpenServo a replacement control board for standard robotics servos

  • Monome 40h Open firmware/software general purpose sequencer
