EEWeb posted an interview with Ian today. The article covers how Ian got started in electronics, his favorite hardware and software tools, and a few interesting experiences in the open hardware industry. Covered as well are Ian’s future plans for Dangerous Prototypes and the challenges open hardware faces as it becomes more mainstream.
Yesterday Ian talked with Chris and Dave on The Amp Hour podcast. Hear about how Dangerous Prototypes got started in the open source hardware, the Bus Pirate, and Sick of Beige cases and standard PCBs. We also discuss how our fulfillment with Seeed Studio functions, and the process of developing a project from idea to […]
Ian talks about the massive Nixie tube thing and the standard PCBs to Hack a Day. The goal of our standard PCB format is to make it super simple to design a project that fits in a bunch of different cool, open source cases. Grab our Eagle library or KiCAD board templates to use Sick […]
