is planning for 40Fires in partnership with Nesta a conference on Open Hardware on the 4th of December. The conference is an opportunity to edcuate engineers, tinkerers and designers alike on Open Hardware, a growing frontier in the field of innovation. It is also a platform for experts of Open Hardware to exchange ideas and solutions to further improve upon the workings of Open Hardware. Open Hardware works under the same framework as Open Source Software. The design is open the the public, where a virtual community of contributors could modify or build upon the existing design. Some existing projects will be showcased throughout the conference to give a basic gist of how Open Hardware functions. "
