  • 1. Hardware hacking for fun and profit Matt Biddulph
  • 2. “I see no social imperative for free hardware designs like the imperative for free software. On “Free Hardware” By Richard Stallman – Linux Today, 1999
  • 3. “Freedom to copy software is an important right because it is easy now—any computer user can do it.” On “Free Hardware” By Richard Stallman – Linux Today, 1999
  • 4. “Freedom to copy hardware is not as important, because copying hardware is hard to do.” On “Free Hardware” By Richard Stallman – Linux Today, 1999
  • 5. quote: “The computing revolution was about digitising information. The wireless-communications revolution is about making digital information about anything, available anywhere, at almost no cost.” quote: “Huge amounts of data that were once impossible or too expensive to collect will become the backbone of entirely new services.” A disruptive change is occurring in the physical environment thanks to physical computing, pervasive networks and abundant digital storage
  • 6. “IPv6 wants to transform everything in the world, even every part of every thing, into a node.”
  • 7. Cheap Hardware
  • 8. Hackable Hardware
  • 9. Hackable Hardware
  • 10. 3D printers, enabling production on command. The physical world’s closest thing to the internet concept of ‘free, infinite copies’ Works well with open source - send a cellphone design to Africa and let them modify it for local needs http://www.flickr.com/photos/oskay/472097903/

  • 14. “If you can't open it, you don't own it.”
  • 15. “If You Can’t Open It, You Don’t Own It” We modified a simple toy remote control car...
  • 16. ... to have bluetooth control. It’s a mess, but so was my first CGI and now look at me. This is software people making things happen in the physical world - “Right-click to modify the world”

  • 20. Arduino boards make the microcontroller easy to prototype with
  • 21. Arduino Arduino boards make the microcontroller easy to prototype with
  • 22. Arduino circuit board design is creative commons - make your own, improve the design.
  • 23. void setup() { pinMode(ledPin, OUTPUT); } void loop() { digitalWrite(ledPin, HIGH); // sets the LED on delay(1000); // waits for a second digitalWrite(ledPin, LOW); // sets the LED off delay(1000); // waits for a second } Hello World - almost as easy as scripting Documented online Half an hour’s work from unpacking the arduino

  • 29. “It’s getting to the point where it’s as easy to get involved in this world as it would be for you to go home, open Notepad, and start writing HTML” Matt Webb, http://schulzeandwebb.com/2007/hills/slides/?p=47
  • 30. Go see Matt Jones and Tom Coates and they will tell you more.
