The Desafio 100km 1liter race: The challenge is not only to cover the distance of 100 km with only 1 liter of gas (235 MPG) but to compete with other participants in a race using cars developed with open source hardware.
After registering, student teams build a vehicle using Open Hardware and participate in the race in 2014. It will take place in south Brazil on the island of Florianópolis.
Three of the organizers of the Desafio will speak at the Open Hardware Summit: Jean-Luc Wingert, who designed the event, will talk in the “Collective Innovation” session about the mix of collaboration, competition and open hardware in this event. Rodrigo Magri and Brener Martins will also be present.
Adafruit will be at the Open Hardware Summit — September 6, 2013. Becky Stern, Director of Wearable Electronics will be speaking – Wearables at the intersection of electronics and craft. Adafruit is sponsor and supporter of the Open source hardware association and the Open Hardware summit. Our posts are all here and follow the action on twitter with #ohsummit.
