Femtoduino: an ultrasmall arduino board

This is amazing, perfect for those times when your have to create another board just to hold the atmega µC. I am looking forward to use this tiny board in some project in a near future. Congrats to Varesano for the project.

Arduino-Based Digital Clock

Wow, this is amazing! DOTKLOK is an open-source, hackable, Arduino-based digital clock that displays a series of unique time-telling animations.

DOTKLOK is an open-source, hackable, Arduino-based digital clock that displays a series of unique time-telling animations. The passing of time is depicted with numbers and abstract/geometric patterns such as Morse code and minimal analog clock faces, and includes animations inspired by classic video games such as Pong, Tetris, Pacman, and Space Invaders.

You can buy the kit for U$150.00 and it assembled for U$200.00
for me… I think I will build one, hell yeah I’m going to build one, just love it!!!

You can check more information from dotklok’s website.

Open Hardware Definition 1.0 Released

It’s finally here, a document that will help us to define what Open Hardware is, and to spread the idea. Open Software have been around for a long time, Open Hardware is still beginning, but already have a really big community out there, including me. I will add the logo to my next projects for sure!

Now, to move forward, please HELP:

This is a very important step in propelling our movement forward. PLEASE FORWARD FAR AND WIDE.
