What's open source hardware?

Community-owned designs.

We are not patenting anything. Supercapacitors are an exciting technology, and we don't want to make them any more obscure than they already are.

By keeping the source files for our electronics open, we're making it easy for engineers and hobbyists to work on their own projects or contribute to ours.

 

Where do I get the files?

Here:

As work is available, it will appear here and through our page at GitHub

Helium / Capacitizer v1.6 schematics & Gerbers are up now - all the files you need to build your own Helium-like speaker, or to develop custom electronics of your own. All our open source license requires is that derivative products and designs remain open.
