Opening Up Virtual Reality Development with WebVR

“Virtual reality (VR) is nothing new — people have been experimenting with it for decades. But only recently, we have come to terms with having commercial hardware like Oculus or HTC Vive to experience and enjoy VR content within our home,” says Rabimba Karanjai, a full-time graduate researcher and...

John “Warthog” Hawley, Intel’s evangelist for the MinnowBoard SBC, surveyed key open hardware trends at the Embedded Linux Conference Europe.

Open Source Hardware: From SBCs to Servers

When you mention open source hardware, people typically think about community-backed hacker boards. However, the open hardware movement is growing on many fronts, including medical devices, rocketry and satellites, 3D printers, cameras, VR gear, and even laptops and servers. At the Embedded Linux...

Paweł Wieczorek describes how he and his colleagues at the Samsung R&D Institute Poland developed an Automated Testing Laboratory to streamline testing of Tizen Common on community-backed SBCs at ELC.

Automating Software Testing on Linux SBCs

Demand is increasing for embedded software projects to support a variety of Linux hacker boards -- and that requires time consuming hardware testing to prove that your software works reliably. Fortunately, you can integrate test automation tools into your software development process to streamline...

The Growing Ecosystem Around Open Networking Hardware

At Facebook, we believe that hardware and software should be decoupled and evolve independently. We create hardware that can run multiple software options, and we develop software that supports a variety of hardware devices — enabling us to build more efficient, flexible, and scalable...

First 64-Bit and Enterprise OS Comes to Raspberry Pi 3

SUSE supports a lot of architectures and runs on everything from IBM mainframe to x86 machines, and more. With ARM’s push in the data center, it made even more sense for SUSE to work closely with ARM to support yet another platform. When the Raspberry Pi 3 Model B was announced, SUSE engineers...

Multi-Arch Docker Images

Although the promise of Docker is the elimination of differences when moving software between environments, you’ll still face the problem that you can’t cross platform boundaries, i.e. you can’t run a Docker image built for x86_64 on a arm board such as the Raspberry Pi. This means that if you want...
