What is Open Source Hardware? 143

ptorrone writes "In their piece 'What is open source hardware?', MAKE magazine divides up electronic hardware into layers, each of which has different document types and licensing concerns: Hardware (mechanical) diagrams, schematics & circuit diagrams, layout diagrams, core/firmware, software/API — each layer has an example provided and links to many of the open source hardware projects currently being worked on."

    The schematics for the paper clip are widely available, and easily cloned, and it runs the open source uBendTo OS!
    Apoligies for bad joke in advance, apoligies for bad spelling come later.

    Im looking for a bento box, it cant be pinku (thats japanese for pink) or any girl color. It has to be
    of 2 or more kotoba (thats japanese for 2 compartments) and has be be chibi (small) sized. And
    has to be really kawaii (cute). Also It has to be about 10-20 bux. And you have to post pics of it
    first (i want to make shure it's kawaii [cute]). And it would be nice if it came with matching
    chopstick holder (WITH chopsticks). OH! and it CANNOT have any cartoon pictures, or be made
    out of plastic. It has to be made of ceramic, or something like that. Also it would be nice if it was
    made in japan. and not in china or corea (korea) or whatever. I have found a bento box similar to
    the one im describing in e-bay, but it was 1 kotoba, and i dont want my gohan (rice) to touch my
    other things (it can get wet and i would not like that, plus 2 compartments looks more kawaii)

    I was almost worried we wouldn't see a FUD post by you in this thread. A thread on open source or Linux just isn't as good without a troll post by The_Abortionist.
