Catching the Spirit of Open Hardware

oshw-logo-800-px

Amber Matz wrote a great blog post with impressions from the 2016 Open Hardware Summit that occurred last week in Portland, Oregon.  Check out the post for her thoughts:

There was so much to inspire and learn from at the Open Hardware Summit. From 3D printed prosthetic hands, to touch sensors for surgeons in India performing surgery on the pancreas, to nurturing project communities, to makerspaces and entrepreneurship in refugee communities in Beirut, Lebonon–I walked away with so many ideas–and tabs open on my phone and computer. I think it will take all year to process all the things I learned and want to learn more about!

The event was live-streamed and you can watch all the presentations on this UStream channel.

Getting involved in open hardware communities has renewed my sense of appreciation for tech communities like the Drupal community. It is so wonderful to see the amazing things that people can make when they build things together.
