Open Hardware and technology development
We are keen users of modern user-oriented manufacturing systems such as 3D printing, laser cutting and custom electronic circuit design, as well as custom optics. Our designs range from state-of-the-art 2P customisations and visual stimulators to simple tools like 3D printed pipettes and adapters. All our produce is released under open hardware licences. Beside supporting our own science and the hope to save some money on equipment, we want to explore designs to see what can be useful for research and education in financially disadvantaged schools and labs around the world.
For an intro, see our first published paper on the subject as well as the official PLoS Open Hardware collection that we co-curate. Also, visit Open-labware.net as well as our GitHub
