Popular X-box hacker and open-source hardware proponent Andrew “Bunnie” Huang is confirmed as a keynote speaker for EE Live!, featuring the Embedded Systems Conference, on Wednesday, April 2, at 9:30 am at the San Jose Convention Center.
Bunnie’s talk will focus on how open-source hardware can play a role in creating lasting value and user communities around new hardware platforms, the implications of the open-source hardware movement for traditional business models, and new opportunities for design engineers.
Famously known for his Xbox exploits, Bunnie is a strong advocate of open-source hardware and is an active contributor to the ecosystem.
An MIT graduate with a PhD in EE, Bunnie is currently a Research Affiliate with the MIT Media Lab and serves as a technical adviser for several startups. He also remains an active practicing engineer, with experience designing everything from nanophotonic silicon chips, wireless radios, and consumer electronics to robotic submarines.
In 2012 Bunnie received an Electronic Frontier Foundation Pioneer Award for his work in hardware hacking. Bunnie also will speak on his experiences manufacturing hardware in China at the Hardware Startup Engineering Summit at EE Live!, which takes place during EE Live! 2014, March 31–April 3, 2014.
