The Royal Society of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce, together with the Comino Foundation, are hosting a day-long interactive showcase and celebration of making at London’s historic Somerset House on Wednesday 19th June.
Dr Jeremy Bennett will be giving a talk at midday, entitled Open Source Hardware: How freely available designs drive education, innovation and industrial progress.
Jeremy will also be accompanied by Simon Cook and myself, who will together be representing the Open Source Hardware User Group and demonstrating a collection of open embedded technologies throughout the day, including:
- 66-core Parallella prototype
- OpenRISC system-on-chip targeted to an FPGA and running Linux
- TI PandaBoard
- TI BeagleBone
All three of us will also be present at the evening part of the event, which features speakers Professor Bill Lucas, Chris Wilkinson, John Stevenson MP, and Andy Sleigh as Chair.
The event is free to attend and open to all. For further details and to register please visit the Eventbrite page.
