Openwrt porting

So i have custom openwrt .bin images that i want to run on rasberry pi or find a feaseable board that i can develop and add onto that runs openwrt .bin images thats cheap, or a way to convert these images. Even tools to extract or convert would be helpful with out completly rebuilding the project

How to buy parts?

BOM

Hi guys, looking for advice on how to buy parts. Have done the schematics on OSHW lab - but when I click 'Purchase Parts', it says Invalid Field, anyone know how to purchase these parts?

Any projects for a universal AC/DC battery bank and charger using street lithium?

I am trying to find a way to build a combination wall wart and battery bank USB charger as cheaply as possible for the purposes of free distribution to people in need, since none of the commercial options are inexpensive enough to buy in large numbers, and I also don't want to contribute to more plastic and battery waste etc, so would like it if possible to have a BMS that you can just solder 18650s or any other small lithium chemistry cells you might find in disposable electronics to it.

Are there open source projects already for something like this?

Arduino now has Matter/Thread (best home automation protocol) modules as soft-opensource on Flux.

Really cool if Matter/Thread is actually the future of home automation. After research: Thread is supposed to be the best of all mesh/wifi-esqe languages. (even tho it still needs a hub for wifi...ew) Apparently, Zigbee requires a hub too but is still worse for smart home systems (somehow?).

TLDR: Here's the open source projects link

So I wanted to know if anyone has experience with matter/thread chipset from Silicon Labs or used it in general. I'm wondering if it's a good idea to begin designing on flux or use zigbee/wifi to do this. (BTW I am making an apartment automation system for my wakeup routine.)

Also I like the idea of using Matter/Thread because the arduino+siliconlabs boards & chips n' stuff are currently available to design around in this open source hardware AI powered EDA site "Flux".

University Project

Hey guys, Was hoping if some of you can share some opensourcehardware projects which can be developed further to turn into business. Appreciate your help.

A Place to Share/Colab OSHW?

I've had an idea recently of a website that can be used to share and store open-source electronics projects, something like GitHub but more geared towards HW.

It would hold git repositories so you can use the normal git workflow, and most people use KiCad, which defacto uses git anyway.

Since KiCad files are all plaintext, the repository webpages could offer a deeper insight into the projects. It could have parts lists, rendered schematics, board files, and step files. This way, users can browse projects without having to checkout anything. If you want to use a specific component, you can search for it and have many projects that use the same component.

Colab on open source HW projects has been challenging because merging is hard; the website could design a merge tool to allow for "PRs" so many people can work on one giant project. Something like this could be the key to designing awesome hardware. I could see a future where we're designing something as substantial as the Linux Kernel but with hardware. Phones, VR headsets, tablets, etc...

With the emergence of disposable electronics, I think this could be important.

Does anything like this exist? Any thoughts?

OpenSource diabetes projects

Can someone help me find some open source hardware products that help diabetics? Are there any projects like a continuous glucose monitor, etc?

Need Developers a Shell/desktopEnv. (No payment)

so, im making this os (in 3 different architectures)

we have the kernel, bootloader, everything else done, i just need a desktop environment, i dont care in what language, either C, C++, Assembly, whatever, mainly low-level (i only have C++/C and assembly compilers so if its another language just, compile it to raw machine code, the files with no format), i dont care if made via TUIs, GUIs, UIs in general, if TUI, (Text), make it shell-based.

LXR Devlog #5 - Our most versatile prototype yet!

Hi everyone, we've just released our devlog#5.

This week we unveil a new design iteration for LXR, our AR Laptop for productivity.Discover more here: https://innoverse.substack.com/p/lxr-devlog-5-building-the-shape-shifter.

Parts of our latest design iteration, including 2 alt. keyboards

We think that it may be our most versatile & advanced prototype to date.New case, New alternative keyboard, and a stronger identity.

Do you have some suggestions? We would happily onboard them if possible!

Thanks!

LXR Devlog #4 - New prototype!

Hey! We've just released our devlog #4.

This week we unveil our 2nd design iteration for LXR, our AR Laptop for productivity.
Discover more here: https://innoverse.substack.com/p/lxr-devlog-4-building-the-shark.

A comparison between the new prototype (left) and the first one (right).

We feel we've made progress compared with the first prototype. Thinner, more comfortable.
Do you have some suggestions? We would happily onboard them if possible!

Thanks!

Managing Objects with Tagging and Policies

Tags are a valuable way to categorize objects saved to MinIO. Each tag is a key-value pair. You can assign tags to an object when it is saved to MinIO, or you can add them to existing objects. 

You might think that organizing by bucket makes sense, and it does sometimes, but this only gives you the bucket and its prefixes to leverage for organizing data. Yes, object key name prefixes enable sorting and categorization of data, but only in one dimension.

Hey, we've just released our devlog#3.

This week we unveil our very first working prototype for LXR, our AR Laptop for productivity (https://innoverse.substack.com/p/lxr-devlog-3-building-the-mammoth).

See it in action below!

https://reddit.com/link/17mpra2/video/jdapf97543yb1/player

We are now working on how to improve it in so many ways.
It is time to make suggestions, we would happily onboard them if possible!

Thanks for your input!

My 3-year journey of developing and open-sourcing an educational robotic platform

Our open-source robotic platform (OSHWA US002433) is now live!

The robot is our 3-year journey of making robotics a less frightening field to get started. We talked to hundreds of students and Professors, iterated countless times to be here. We decided to open-source our design so that everyone can benefit from it. You can find out more about the design via our Github repo.

On the other hand, to get a better quotation from manufacturer, we are launching our Kickstarter campaign. If you believe in what we are doing, if you want to try out our design, please consider backing us!

Thank you and we hope that your help will enable us to continue this journey to its next chapters!

How to open source?

I've got a project that I've worked on the past year. I was a week away from releasing it on Github but realized I should think about a license. I was thinking about GPL for the software and TAPR for the hardware. How exactly do I apply these licenses? Do I need notices in the code? Do I need to use the entire text of the license, mention it, or just link to it? Do I need something on the PCB? Should I get my project certified as Open Hardware? What's involved? Just put the icon on the PCB?

I would like as many people as possible to have easy access to my project. If some Chinese company decides to make kits, I'd be happy. I just want to maintain ownership.

Thanks!

(LXR Devlog #2) what is the best SBC currently on the market?

Hey, we've just released our devlog#2, this week we focus on the reference configuration for LXR, our AR Laptop for productivity (https://innoverse.substack.com/p/lxr-devlog-2-crafting-a-reference).

We opted for the Khadas Edge 2 as our SBC (https://www.khadas.com/edge2).

At this stage, we feel it offers a very good compromise between performance/size for integration into our ergonomic split keyboard.

But, maybe you have better suggestions!
As we would like to make it compatible with many SBCs, which one would you recommend?

Thanks for your input!
