Our team wishes everyone an open and a very successful 2017! For us already the very beginning of the year has been full of changes. With our product Koruza growing to the point of entering the professional market we had to make some strategic decisions in the last quarter of 2016.

We believe open source knowledge and digital fabrication can serve as a platform for empowerment and life improvement since it enables local production of solutions a certain community needs as well as it lowers the entry barrier into manufacturing for small local businesses. We plan to run several pilot projects to establish a good practice for setting up local digital...
Safecast-bGeigie
28 Nov 2016
We created an integrated version of the bGeigie device, a mobile survey Geiger counter, by Safecast, who are working to empower people with data about their environments. Our PCB is based on original design by Safecast. We removed various breakout boards and instead placed most of the components directly to the PCB. Our design uses RedBear Duo(https://github.com/redbear/Duo) as a central...

Optical wireless system KORUZA operates by directing a collimated beam of light towards another unit to establish communication. To be able to precisely aim a beam of light with a millimeter precision when shining at a distant unit at 150 m away, one requires two key components; a precise motor drive (see blog about it) for mechanical displacement of a...

In the last year we proved that low-cost CNC milling and plasma cutting is technically feasible and that our approach of a “suitcase kit” works - we lowered the entry step in digital manufacturing and made it possible practically everywhere around the world. That is why we are now exploring options how to distribute more GoodEnoughCNC Hybrid machines globally to...

In the beginning of 2016 we have finished first series of open source turtle tag enclosures for Zoological Society of London. The tags, nicknamed “Pitstop tags” because of the design that enables researchers to “swap” a tag out and replace it with a freshly charged one, have been tested by Alasdair Davies from Zoological Society of London in collaboration with...
