Great news – SparkFun is officially making some of their kits “open source hardware”. A couple weeks ago SparkFun and Adafruit chattered over hamburgers and one of the topics was the future and continuation of open source hardware, something we all think everyone benefits from. From the start SparkFun has always been a supporter of OSH and now they’re putting the file out there with specific licensing for open source hardware! Nathan’s note: One of the great things about open source is the ability to say “Hey, I’m pretty sure this works, but it may not be the best way to do it. Can you help me out?”! Check out their ClockIt kit, one of many we suspect will be OSH’ed!
