Session 7, Episode 4 | The Role of Open Source Hardware Single Board Computer Development

Added January 13, 2017, Length 6:57

As the complexity of boards increases, the parts get smaller, and the amount of effort required to recreate the design of a board increases, open source hardware becomes more and more critical.

Session 7, Episode 3 | Bridging the Gap Between Proof of Concept and Optimized Product

Added January 13, 2017, Length 9:22

Often you may have a proof of concept up and running in the Arduino* environment or using a scripting language, but it will have to be rewritten and optimized on a different architecture with industrial APIs to reduce cost and improve efficiency.

Session 7, Episode 2 | Discussion: Reducing Complexity and Supporting New Languages

Added January 13, 2017, Length 9:23

Should a development IDE present all the options or just the ones that are the most useful and relevant for most developers? How much do you obfuscate the complexity of a system in order to attract users to your platform? David argues that you have to get people making first, and then show them what’s under the hood.

Session 7, Episode 1 | David Scheltema: Aspire to be More than Just Arduino* Compatible

Added January 13, 2017, Length 6:11

Most of the maker community has come from a rapid prototyping background on Bare Metal* 8-bit platforms like the Arduino* and don’t have experience deploying custom Linux* builds or board support packages for physical computing purposes. Although this opens up an entirely new realm of possibilities, there is a knowledge gap that many players are working right now to fill.

Session 6, Episode 5 | Mike Kuniavsky: The Innovation Boat and the Open Source Wake

Added January 13, 2017, Length 9:02

In an earlier conversation with Mike, we discussed the potential value of open systems because the companies that adopt them are more likely to be trusted and ubiquitous. He used the example of how IBM invested deeply in Linux* because they knew that their core business model was a set of high-value services that built upon the OS, without selling the OS itself. 

Session 6, Episode 4 | Eric Klein: Using Open Source to Your Advantage without Scaring VCs

Added January 13, 2017, Length 6:55

The speed and quality advantages you get from rooting an open source product can increase the quality of the product, decrease the time to market, and lower the cost of the product. The debate about whether to remain open or closed boils down to the core value you are providing.

Session 6, Episode 3 | Eric Klein: Three Case Studies of OS Models for Early Stage Commercial Ventures

Added January 13, 2017, Length 8:41

Eric presented three different case studies of companies Lemnos Labs has worked with that have considered open source from a technical, community, and business standpoint. Each company took nuanced approaches to define their business model.

Session 6, Episode 2 | Discussion: Who Pays for the Atoms?

Added January 13, 2017, Length 4:10

At one point in the conversation Mike asked Ari: “Who pays for the atoms, and when?” With most open software the laptop is already a sunk cost and the bits are essentially free. The biggest difference between software and hardware is that the cost of producing the hardware in small quantities can be prohibitively high and the complexity of producing boards increases and you increase production.

Session 6, Episode 1 | Ari Douglas: Opening Up Historical IP and Open/Closed Models

Added January 13, 2017, Length 6:18

Added December 20, 2016, Length 5:14

The ubiquity of Fritzing in many small hardware projects as a documentation tool is in part due to a watermark that they added to the layout tool. This small change is effectively a trademark for a tool they were giving away for free.

Session 4, Episode 4 | The Role of Trust when Choosing Products and Tools

Added December 20, 2016, Length 2:46

What would prevent customers from purchasing an Arduino* or a Sparkfun* product from a copycat product that sells a derivative of your product for less money?

Session 4, Episode 5 | David Scheltma: Bringing the Maker Community to a Broader Audience

Added December 20, 2016, Length 4:06

Make: has a preference for publishing projects with Open Source Hardware because they allow others to hack them, enabling the community to design and build their own electronics ideas.

Session 4, Episode 7 | Discussion: Interchange formats between PCB Layout Programs

Added December 20, 2016, Length 2:35

One issue that keeps coming up with electrical engineers is that it is difficult to share board designs between programs (Altium*, ORCAD*, KiCAD*, Eagle*, etc.). At the moment, sharing designs is often constrained by the design tool used. The majority of people in the OSH communities use Eagle files because this is an established norm, and at Intel we use commericial layout programs with a high license fee and a proprietary format.

Session 5, Episode 6 | How Do Designers Who Make Represent Their Value in Traditional Design Contexts?

Added December 19, 2016, Length 4:50

André points out that often makers build things simply to play with the technology and learn about it without a specific social goal in mind. Designers tend to approach tools with a specific purpose or idea in mind: the “what for” that drives innovation in the maker movement. This juxtaposition of “improving the tools” and “finding the what for of a technology” is where designers and makers complement each other.
