Chicago Northside Mini Maker Faire

the first and largest officially licensed Maker Faire in the Chicagoland area. We are a local, grassroots celebration of the Do-It-Yourself (DIY) spirit in Chicago, focusing on education across all ages and social groups. Our makers represent a mix of beginners and experts, hobbyists and professionals, groups and individuals, and all ages, backgrounds, and interests. With a shoestring budget and only a dream, our inaugural Mini Maker Faire in April, 2012 was a smashing success thanks to the 50+ makers who shared their talents in 3D printing, robotics, jewelry making, and urban farming, just to name a few. Now with close to 100 makers, we’re still growing. Come
experience it for yourself!

Hologram.io: Open-Sourcing Our Hardware

Ben Strahan of Hologram.io writes about why development hardware should be open source:

Open-Sourcing Our Hardware

It’s a simple premise – black boxes stifle innovation while open systems encourage exploration. Black Boxes and IP have their place as an essential tool in our economy; but in an industry like IoT where rapid innovation is needed, we need to push for open development tools as the building blocks that lead to innovative end-products for industry and consumers.

Going forward Hologram will open-source all hardware we develop for the developer community, including dependent firmware, through OSHWA. We see this as a mandatory step we need to take to help move IoT forward, to lower the barriers to entry, and to spur innovation in a rapidly evolving ecosystem.

The hardware design files for the new Hologram Nova module are available on GitHub:
