We were honored to participate in the creation of the awards which were given out this year. Using an Eggbot, we plotted the Open Source Award design onto lightbulbs which were integrated into the awards which were given out on stage. Additionally, the award recipients are each receiving an Eggbot. It is exciting and fitting that this year’s award is itself open source hardware which works on open source software and was created using open source tools.

  1. I think my head will explode from all of the open source-ness going on here. Fantastic work, by the way. Those awards look great!

  2. Re.
    I have shortend it this way: Take three recycled, washed, supermarket jam jars with rubber-seal snap lids and 2/3 fill them with chopped-up citrus fruit. Chop away at it with a knife until the juice covers the peel. Top the jar with sugar to taste. Put the jars in a crock-pot with a half-inch of water and turn it on high for four hours. Pick them up with two-layer rubber gloves and crack open the rubber seals just enough so that you see a few bubbles rising in the juice. Re-seal and throughly shake and let the seals pop down. Sealing the top during cooking preserves the aromatics, and it can be used to boost the taste of commercial jam or applesauce.
