ptorrone writes "The Open Source Hardware Statement of Principles and
Open Source Hardware Definition have hit 1.0[1]. Open Source Hardware
is a term for tangible artifacts machines, devices, or other physical
things whose design has been released to the public in such a way that
anyone can make, modify, distribute, and use those things. This
definition is intended to help provide guidelines for the development
and evaluation of licenses for Open Source Hardware. The top open
hardware electronics pioneers and companies have endorsed the 1.0
definition, and next up will be logo selection[2]."
