Hi! I'm an open source hardware and an activist for digital rights and freedoms.
My work is primarily funded by the goodwill of the community, through donations, pledges and private contracts. Currently, I have two big community projects:
- NeTV2, an open source video platform which is a basis of the lawsuit against the US government to challenge section 1201 of the DMCA.
- Betrusted, an open source mobile communications device that aims to keep your private matters safe from advanced threats. It is designed for easy verification of correct construction and transparency.
If you want to put a face behind the code, you can see me talk about:
verilog FPGA code for NeTV
A port of ChibiOS to the Orchard radio platformC 29
Posix C framework for controlling IQ motorsC 12
Vivado design for basic NeTV2 FPGA with chroma-based overlayVHDL 11
C and C++ library for STM32 ARM Cortex-M3 development boards.C 10
NeTV2 SoC based on LiteXC 10

$2 a month
Send me a cup of coffee every month. Help keep me wired, so I can lay out more wires for you!
$8 a month
Help me keep my lab stocked with basics like solder, fasteners, and wire. I go through these like ̵w̵a̵t̵e̵r̵ coffee when prototyping a new design!
$32 a month
Getting production ready means building several copies of a prototype and discovering all the ways it can fail, so you don't have to. The more samples I can build and iterate, the more robust the final product tends to be. Help me push to production by buying more Raspberry Pis, memory cards and FPGAs!
$256 a month
Send me 8 bits of good karma, and once every month you can ask me a technical question via email and I'll do my best to answer it. If you're designing a circuit, starting a company, or reverse engineering a product, I'll try my best to advise.
$512 a month
One more bit of good karma, and once a month we can do the same as above, but through a one-hour video call.

Light up my life, and I'll light up yours. In addition to the $2048-tier benefits, tell me what inspires you, and over the course of each sponsored year I will express my thanks by building you a bespoke light sculpture. Choose if you want to hang this in a lobby, place it on a coffee table, stand it on the floor, or display it on a wall, and I will blend art and technology to deliver a truly unique experience.
