Lenore and Windell of Evil Mad Scientist Laboratories are one of the purest forms of open source that I know of. From the start of what we’ve all called “open hardware” their voices and leadership has inspired many of us to be as open, and sharing as much as we can.

They might be most known for their bots, including The Original EggBot, an open source CNC art robot.

However, they also made the now famous Mooninite kit, Peggy (MAKE link is broken).

Here are a couple screenshots from when our cats would video chat with each other back in 2010 and talk about hardware, we (Adafruit) were still an apartment company back then.

Here is a great profile of Lenore and Windell on MAKE from this year (2019).

And for more retro, a photo from the second (!) Maker Faire in 2007 of Ladyada with Lenore and Windell. Oh! They also made BristleBots.
