#oggstreamer – graphics design finished

I just tested the graphics, which will be laser engraved in the final oggstreamers. For the test I used a transparency sheet and laser printed the graphics with 600 dpi.

The result looks quite promising Рhere it is: (sorry for the bad photo quality)

If you are by any chance in Vienna on the 24th Feb. – I would like to invite you to a talk i am giving within the Solidarity-based Economy Congress 2013. I will be talking about the Open Technologie Labratory and the OggStreamer Project. The experiences from the past years and how these two project benefited from each other. The short description reads as follows:

OpenHardware and open workshops as tools for experimental exploration of alternative economic models

Field report and thought-provoking impulses from 3 years of work on two projects. The first project, called OTELO, aims at the installation of open workshops in rural areas. The second project, called OggStramer, is an electronic OpenHardware product. It was developed with the support of many friendly people within the OTELO Vöcklabruck, where it became a production-ready device. This development was made possible due to the OTELO framework, which served as space, network and source of inspiration. With this lecture we want to tell the story of these projects to show, that complex ventures (regardless their nature) are possible with the support of a community.
