Building the future with open hardware. Monday Morning Salvage: March 27, 2017

Flotsam (what we’re obsessed with right now)

I spent the last week at the annual Gathering for Open Science Hardware in Santiago, Chile exploring the future of science and the open-source movement with one of the most impressive hardware developers, hackers, makers, and artists in the world. It’s my travel day, so this will necessarily be a short one.

Jetsam (what we’re enjoying from around the web)

Lagan (what we’re reading from the peer-reviewed literature)

  • Nilsiam and friends (2015) Integrated Voltage—Current Monitoring and Control of Gas Metal Arc Weld Magnetic Ball-Jointed Open Source 3-D Printer. DOI:10.3390/machines3040339.

Driftwood (what we’re reading on dead trees)

Derelicts (favorites from the deep archive)

Some of the open-source projects we’ve been working on at Southern Fried Science.

Feel free to share your own Flotsam, Jetsam, Lagan, Driftwood, and Derelicts in the comments below. And, of as always, if you enjoy Southern Fried Science, consider contributing to my Patreon campaign to help us keep the servers humming.
