Create an open source Laser and LED Driver.

This is a simple hand-held (battery operated) driver that can be used with any laser diode or LED (including UV, violet and blue as well as visible, red and IR). It can provide up to 100mA of precisely regulated current.


This device has been extensively tested at the SENSORICA lab in Montreal. It is now ready to be commercialized. Open manual

You can get involved in the design of the next generation.

more on Governance page
PROJECTS are seen as COLLABORATIVE VENTURES, which are TRANSPARENT (anyone has access to the information that they produce) and OPEN (anyone can participate). They only produce PRODUCTS and services based on OPEN SOURCE knowledge or technology. PROJECTS have a CUSTODIAN that represents them legally and acts as a trust for their tangible assets. PROJECTS can have multiple EXCHANGE FIRMS, which are commercial entities that move products and services developed by PROJECTS on the MARKET. EXCHANGE FIRMS oblige themselves by contract with the CUSTODIAN to share PROFIT with all contributors to PROJECTS, from which they commercialize PRODUCTS.
