    Suggestions for Good Open Source Hardware in the vehicle?

    We have been researching a lot of open source hardware and will start carrying some on the store.

    I am wondering what open source hardware you all are using on these forums, as we would like to be supportive of these devices.


    And if you are the creator of os hardware, let me know.

    Arduino is the main one that comes to mind. You all already know of beagleboard and sheevas.

    Phidgets. They just came out with a 10 Hz GPS. Plus servo/motor control, environmental (temp, voltage, motion, etc.), lights, relays, you name it.

    Is Phidgets open source hardware? I thought it was a closed design.

    Yeah, you're right. My bad. I guess I was thinking open source "programmable" hardware.

    As said above, I would say Arduino is great open source hardware. I am using an Arduino clone 'seeeduino' check out my blog post I have just published where I am using an arduino to interface with a temperature sensor and an accelerometer.
