How does open hardware improve our lives? What are progressive engineers currently working on? We are dependent on machines and technical equipment, from power generation and industrial agriculture to the production of high-end technologies. But when we take a critical look behind the dazzling facade of 21st century industrial society, we notice that the processes […]
Recently i attended the “BAC21: Energy and Open Hardware”-Workshop“ in Brussels, from 11.11. until 13.11.2016. Here is my report about that.. Previous history: In the late summer of 2015 the innovationcamp POC21 happened during 5 weeks in the Chateau de Millemont nearby Paris, with the goal, to bring together 100 makers, designers and innovators for […]
We outlined the first design aspects of the wind turbine project. The link points to the OSE wiki entry where you can read about the details. If you have any corrections or hints, or just want to participate in the development of the wind turbine, then please feel free to contact us! 🙂
Open Source is great! To date people know about Open Source mostly from the software development. We want to go one step further into Open Source Hardware and the flourishing of an Open Source Society. For that we are searching for people who want to live out the open source idea in a community. For […]
We will get different movements together in Betahaus, Berlin. Every movement will make a short presentation and after that there will be a short discussion. So far OSE Germany, Sourcefabric and MakerLab have confirmed. There are two more open slots for movements working as Start Up, Commons, Hacker Spaces, Social Business. OSE Germany would be […]
The most important goal of Open Source Ecology is creating an open source economy. Economy in which people are creating, improving, open sourcing and sharing economically significant information, products, processes and ways of living. The time is ripe and we need to enable the participation of more people so that this common wealth be created […]

Mistakes, Association, OSEG Board It is long-time since our last report. We made few mistakes. Our major mistake and obstacle is that we are still very few people working on the active tasks. Our goals are too important and impossible to be carried out by just 4-5 people, most of whom are working only in […]
Our responsibilities are growing and people with experience in PHP, CSS, WordPress, Wikimedia and phpBB can help us tremendously with the Wiki, theme design and other software tasks. For more information, please contact Nikolay. Thank You!
The OpenEcoLan Munich is the first free Workshop of Open Source Ecology Germany (OSEG). OpenEcoLabs are like FabLabs, community operated workshops in which Research & Development of Open Source Hardware and Machines is possible. In this way we adapt and live the Open Source Culture in the real world. Through the different OSEG projects, developed […]
We have the first company to support financially our work! velaia GmbH is giving an unconditional basic income of 1000€ per month to Nikolay Georgiev to continue his work on moving OSE Germany forward. You can find more details here. What we are witnessing is not just a company sponsoring people working on a cause, […]
We are working on the completely open and modular research platform for wind energy: TiVA Turbine. -> Tiny Vertical Axis Wind Turbine and need support for the development of the microcontroller (Software and Hardware) of the wind turbine. Scope: Platform AVR (Arduino) or MSP430 Value Line or another low-priced alternative (chipKIT?) Language C / Assembler, […]
