Top 10 Open Source Linux Robots

Back in 2014, we struggled to fill out our top 10 roundup of Linux-based robots and padded the list with conceptually similar autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) and unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). In addition, many of those robots were proprietary or open source only on the software side. Today...

Two Arduinos Become One

The schism between two Arduino companies (that we covered in March 2015) has apparently been settled. The poster child for the open hardware movement is now under one company "Arduino Holding" and a new not-for-profit Arduino Foundation has been started. "Massimo Banzi, Co-Founder of Arduino LLC,...
