If you’re considering selling something on Tindie, an obvious question is “where do I get it made?” If you have a 3D printer, laser cutter, or are simply good and efficient with hand tools, these can present good solutions for very low volumes. Perhaps…
Olimex has been a great friend and supporter of open source hardware. not just with producing open source hardware products but also being an active member in the community. with that in mind when i needed get a microchip compatible PIC programmer, i immediately and without hesitation ordered the PIC-KIT3 from Olimex. Vote with your wallet and support open source hardware companies when you can! thanks !
It may have influenced Charles Babbage and Ada Lovelace.

I am an embedded systems engineer specializing in the integration of hardware and software at the lowest levels utilizing Open Source tools, bootloaders, and operating systems such as Linux to rapidly produce quality products. Past product developments have included the TCSX-1 thin client for Advantage Business Computer Systems, the M5900 handheld for American Microsystems Ltd., and the PandaBoard for Texas Instruments.
My specialty is complex problem solving to provide rapid solutions to both hardware and software issues. This includes reverse engineering existing legacy projects as well as processing, assimilating and filtering large amounts of datasheets, schematics, software source code, and management specifications.
