The Robots are getting a hard reset. In a recent Amp Hour Podcast (#125) Dave from the EEVblog and Chris from Chris Gammell’s Analog Life were discussing open hardware with Ian from Dangerous Prototypes. The guts of the show was that open source hardware/software is the way to go with a project like this. Starting out I had delusions that this would be a marketable product, but the reality is unless I have outrageous amounts of funding to get these things UL listed, they’ll never see commercial production.  So, world, here ya go. I’ll start posting what I’ve got so far.

I have no idea, I can't really explain it... I'm using the guise of a 'learning project' but the best way I've found to describe it is by comparing it to a collector car. This is my '69 GT. It will absorb all my time, energy, and money. While its necessity is questioned by all around me, in the eyes of the few, I will have it all.
