Join us for the Open Hardware Summit on March 13th in New York City! It will be the 10th anniversary and Sophi Kravitz will be giving a keynote. More speakers will be announced soon!
The 2020 Open Hardware Summit will be held Friday, March 13th 2020 at Tishman Auditorium at NYU School of Law, New York located at 63 5th Ave, New York, NY 10003.
The Open Hardware Summit is the annual conference of the 501c3 Open Source Hardware Association (OSHWA). We aim to foster technological knowledge and encourage research that is accessible, collaborative and respects user freedom. OSHWA is recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt public charity and donations and sponsorships to OSHWA and the Summit are tax deductible to the extent permitted by law.
Types of ticket:
- Early Bird Backer – Help others get to the Summit. This ticket price funds the Ada Lovelace travel grants.The early bird ticket will be available only for first few weeks of the tickets launch.
- Early Bird Standard – This will give you access to the Open Hardware Summit event. The early bird ticket will be available only for first few weeks of the tickets launch.
- Backer- Help others get to the Summit. This ticket price funds the Ada Lovelace travel grants.
- Standard – The standard ticket gives you access to the Open Hardware Summit event.
- Hardship – Are you a student, starving artists or just low on funds? We still want you to be able to attend the Summit. This ticket is for those who cannot afford standard admission.
- Standard + OSHWA membership! – This will give you access to the Open Hardware Summit event on 13th March along with a year long subscription of OSHWA (Open Source Hardware Association) membership.

Want to use the KX122-1037 Accelerometer (datasheet) on the 2018 Open Hardware Summit badge?
Make sure that R12 and R13 are populated.
R12 and R13 are 2.2K Ohm resistors for the I2C bus. This is needed for the accelerometer to work. We mistakenly had DNP (do not place) on the BoM (Bill of Materials) for R12 and R13.
Awesome people at Artisan’s Asylum makerspace helped to solder these resistors on the badges right before Open Hardware Summit! 💜✨
It is possible that some badges were not reworked. Please email [email protected] if they are missing from your badge.
This photo shows what is will look like when R12 and R13 are missing:
Download the Python file named accelerometer.py from the ohs18apps repository on GitHub:
Start the FTP server and connect to the SSID listed on the badge:
Open your FTP client application and connect to 192.168.4.1:
After the transfer completes, power cycle the badge by removing the batteries and reinserting.
Press the left application button (with the paintbrush and pencil icons) to enter the menu. accelerometer.py should then be listed under Available Apps menu. Press the down cursor until accelerometer.py is selected and then press the application button again.
The KX122-1037 Accelerometer datasheet describes the 3 different axis:
Here are examples of the X, Y and Z axis of the accelerometer for reference:
X axis positive max
X axis negative max
Y axis positive max
Y axis negative max
Z axis positive max
Z axis negative max
The annual Open Hardware Summit took place on September 27th at MIT, and all the exciting and insightful presentation were live streamed to YouTube!
The live stream is broken into morning session and afternoon session.
